Incredible makeover of basement turned home pub

Cellar Pub-Crisp Architects-01-1 Kindesign

This unique basement transformation into a home pub with a wine cellar was designed by Crisp Architects in New York City, New York. Here is a description of the renovation project from the architects, “Seldom have we been asked to collaborate with a client who has had such a fully realized vision of the final outcome as this basement pub. I believe he could see himself drinking a pint of stout with friends, throwing darts and playing pool in this space before we measured the existing conditions. We had a great time helping make our client’s vision a reality, working on the details, and throwing in our two cents worth.”

The color for the upper half of the wall is Benjamin Moore White Dove.
