Slate Theory Winery // Green Living Wall
When life gives you grapes, you make wine! This is the beautiful space we created in the cellar of a unique and modern new Winery located in Fredericksburg, Texas. While the natural elements and endless views of nature were hard to miss throughout the rest of the property, the cellar needed to captivate and entice the guests to engage in conversation, remember the cellar, and feel they were touring a wine cellar in the hills of Italy.
The cellar had two large bare walls that exceeded 25 feet wide and 12 feet tall. These walls enclosed and restricted space for décor and respect for nature. We designed two large living walls that are twenty feet tall, 8 feet wide, and house over 810 plants! We created the design to mimic the rolling hills in the Wine Country.
We wanted to incorporate the colors of the furniture and the stone features of the structure. We added pops of color utilizing bromeliads and incorporated hues of silver by incorporating dracaena warneckii. With Fredericksburg, Texas being the second most popular winery destination in the nation, we knew everything from the framing material to the hues of the plant selection would influence the impact that this living wall has in the cellar.
