Rap Interiors has completed a renovation project for Simpsons Wine Estate in Barham, Kent.

The project to create the new Glasshouse Tasting Room, which opened in March, involved converting Simpsons’ two-storey barn into a state-of-the-art winery, office space and visitor attraction.

Rap transformed the top floor of the mezzanine into a wine-tasting room by encasing it in glass and implementing a number of bespoke design features. These include a custom-built bar with an ocean ripple finish and integrated, self-cleaning spittoons; a hanging pendant light with custom wine glass bulbs etched with the Simpson’s logo; ‘S’ shaped wine bottle holders; a luxurious seating area with velvet sofas and cocktail chairs; and a helter-skelter slide – name The Fruit Shute – which transports guests down to the ground floor winery.
