• The Vault

Vault Landscape Vista

This project transformed an actual old bank vault into a wine cellar for private use. Nicolai proposed a 'Trompe L'Oeil' Gold Rush Era theme. Painted brickwork with windows looking out on the East Bay Hills enlarge the small enclosed interior of the vault. Once inside the vault the viewer is in a completely painted environment like a jeweled box with landscape vistas.
