Completed 2010, Client: Charles Taylor Wines
RD Architects, London Office
Our client a leading agent in fine wines, had outgrown their previous premises in Kennington. They had purchased an office building in Catherine Place, Westminster very close to Buckingham Palace in the Birdcage Walk Conservation Area. Our clients required a large, open plan wine tasting room and associated offices. The wine tasting room required a small associated kitchen area and temperature controlled and humidified wine storage. Ideally this was to be easily accessible and on display. We determined that the most suitable location for the wine tasting area was at lower ground floor level. We designed a full-depth extension incorporating a very large contemporary roof light. Air conditioning was integrated throughout and the mansard roof was rebuilt incorporating an additional bathroom.
