Vynebar Vertical Wine Rack Breaks the Monotony

We are tired of seeing those customary wine racks and therefore the Vynebar comes across as a real novelty. It is one of those items that can make it to every house where people intend to store a standard collection of a maximum of 8 bottles. It can effectively make it to modern homes as the Vynebar is comparatively smaller and is yet easy to install.

The Vynebar is ideal for a wasted space in the house and it is an attractive solution to display your smallish wine collection. Depending on what you prefer, the Vynebar is available in 18 different colors and finishes and if you insist, it can even include custom engraving as well. All available colors are formed of anodized aluminum so the fading isn’t really a problem with the Vineyard. The 4-bottle variant costs $40 while the 8-bottle option retails for $60.

This is an interesting idea. It’s certainly something different that the usual wine racks. But the change is so minuscule and basic that it makes you think how come we didn’t think of this before. I don’t know if this is necessarily a better design, but it’s a different one. It’s probably a little more unpractical than the usual one, but it’s a more interesting one when you look at it. Anyway, the number of different colors and finishes offer you many options so this is a plus.

Eels Lake Residence Canada from Altius Architecture

Living by the lake is an ultimate experience but it is a feat that cannot be achieved unless the dwelling you choose to reside in is capable of handling the weather changes. The Eels Lake Residence located in Ontario Canada and finished by Altius Architecture is the kind of dwelling you require to manage the feat. The dwelling draws its inspiration from the Southern Ontario cottaging tradition but is good enough to be used whole year long, unlike the cottages which are occasional dwellings.

The very base of this structure is a solid sustainable foundation while an efficient steel and engineered wood structure allows a delicate glazed skin to wrap the main volume of the structure. This is one of those projects which proves that green technology is a viable mainstream construction option.
