All the carpentry — the waiter's work spaces, bathroom door and bar casing — was created from 90-year-old barrels that held Bordeaux wine. A large 10-top table in the main dining area was made from the top of a 10,000-liter wine barrel. Our judges thought the space "had a warm, rustic, authentic aesthetic," where "you feel like you're in a wine cave." They also liked the lighting and how "the separate rooms provided new experiences" on each subsequent visit. Images courtesy of Roman Kupriyan Honorable Mention Matchbox, Woodbridge, Va. Interior and Exterior Design: Studio McCormack, Costa Mesa, Calif. General Contractor: Shawmut Construction, Boston The judges liked the "bold design statements" and felt the restaurant had a "very sustainable" design.
