How Luxury Amenities Move Residential Living into the Future

How Luxury Amenities Move Residential Living into the Future

Located in East Miami’s resort dominated sandy shores of Sunny Isles Beach, the 132-residential unit tower promises “luxurious living in the clouds” and accomplishes this level of premiere lifestyle in the luxury amenities designed, translated and integrated seamlessly into every facet of life in Porsche Tower.

Whether hosting family and friends, or business partners and prospective clients, the need for versatile lifestyle spaces designed in residential spaces as tenants increasingly blur the line between places of living, places of work and places of community is only growing as lifestyle connects these pillars of personal identity.

Sharing the luxury lifestyle in a world craving unique personal experience is exactly the question Sieger Suarez Architects and Michael Wolk Design Associates and Porsche Design solved in their approach to the luxury amenity integrated design they collaborated to perfect in the Porche Design Tower.

Selected by the Interior Designers, WineTrend engineer team set about realizing a small piece of the Porsche Tower lifestyle vision into a wine environment reality.

The unique challenge, how to appropriately frame and differentiate the private dining and meeting areas in an aesthetically distinguished system, while also functionally integrating a community focus to further bridge the gap between residential space and luxury lifestyle.

“WineTrend brought our vision magnificently to reality.” -Michael Wolk Design

WineTrend actualized the design solution: twin seventeen-foot secure, private wine locker walls that curve with the design of the Tower, reflect the natural floor-to-ceiling windows and ensure the wine is perfectly conditioned to provide a focal point for wine lifestyle.

During the Tower’s grand opening celebration, this prioritization of functional, beautiful design was on full display.

Guests sipped conditioned wine from the secure private wine locker wall, industry leaders communing in these private dining and meeting rooms occasionally turning to watch as the first-of-its-kind car lift system shuttled supercars to sky garages in residences that gazed out floor-to-ceiling windows over uninterrupted views of the Atlanta Ocean.

2019’s Most Innovative Wine Storage Design Projects


The WineTrend team is proud to have made so many of your wine enclosure dreams and designs a reality this past year. While we are already busy designing, actualizing and prepping 2020 projects, we wanted to take a moment during this busy holiday season to celebrate and reflect on some of the most innovative Wine Storage projects we had the privilege of helping our clients realize in 2019.

Auberge Beach Residences

Architect: Nichols Brosch Wurst Wolfe & Associates
Interior Designer: Meyer Davis Studios
Contractor: Moss & Associates

A luxury first residence and spa, the Auberge Napa Valley Wine Room fulfills the promise of ‘Offering Endless Possibilities and Luxury’

A beautiful natural wood encased, custom curved glass wine display with diffused LED lighting celebrates the Napa Valley Wine Room and acts as the face for the concealed climate controlled wine storage space nestled behind to properly preserve Auberge’s finest selections.

Each residence at Auberge also has a conditioned wine locker with full glass door and natural wood shelving designed within the residential space, a fine pairing with Auberge’s commitment to the relaxing beachfront lifestyle.


Modera Buckhead, Sky Lounge

Architect: WDG
Interior Designer: HBA, Hirsch Bedner Associates
Owner: Mill Creek Residential, Modera Buckhead

Value engineered to inspire, the entrance to the contemporary Sky Lounge at Modera of Buckhead is flanked by two 11-foot tall custom wine displays designed to set the aesthetic, refined yet relaxed tone of the lounge space. The minimal racking frame dissolves behind select bottles of the best wine the North Georgia Blue Ridge has to offer.

The frameless glass doors and minimal, slim support posts specifically selected for the project allows the wine to seamless lend an elegance to anywhere in the room and create a label focused lounge atmosphere.

Tower Club Dallas, Thanksgiving Tower

Interior Designer: Thiel & Thiel
Contractor: Wilson/Barnes General Contractors

The transformation of the Thanksgiving Tower at Sky Level to an open, personal connection centric design curated around conversation starters such as custom conditioned wine display units makes it easy to see how this Thiel & Thiel project was championed with ASID’s 2019 Legacy of Design, Best in Show award.

As with the Sky Lounge, the dining experience and atmosphere were prioritized in these understated glass display designs, taking advantage of the minimal frame and ensuring the focus is on The Tower Club’s delightful collection of fine vintages.

Flying Fish Restaurant

Interior Designer: Powell Design Group
Contractor: Brasfield & Gorrie
Client: Walt Disney Resort

One of the key components in the renovation of Disney BoardWalk’s Flying Fish Restaurant was to create a space where “If I’m sitting [anywhere in the restaurant], I’m looking at the beautiful bottles of wine and I’m looking over the wine list… I think the structure here, you immerse with the wine as much as the food, that is magical.”
Chef Tim Majoras

This project was actually completed a few years ago, but we recently had a chance to revisit the 5 conditioned wine displays and to hear how excited award winning head chef, Tim Majoras, was with the integrated dining and wining experience, so the beautiful Flying Fish reimagined refurbishment was very top of mind during many of our 2019 projects.

We always strive to catch the magic that is a perfectly integrated wine environment.

Porsche Design Tower, Penthouse

Interior Designer: Michael Wolk Design
Contractor: Coble Builders

This one-of-a-kind, modern walk-in wine room is designed as the 3rd Floor centerpiece for the panoramic ocean-view penthouse. The curved fixture is designed to seamlessly integrate with the unique shape of the penthouse to provide friends, family, guests and even the discerning sommelier a glass of perfectly preserved fine wine and a première host experience.

The bottle mounting and integrated LED back lighting for the acrylic shelves where designed from scratch for this project to capture the elusive ‘floating wine bottle’ look and realize a truly modern wine focused centerpiece.
