Whiskey Still

As the winning entry in an invited competition, Arch11 reimagines an historic distillery in a modern context.

The history, process, and craft of spirit making informs the proposed expansion of a local whiskey distillery. Architectural and material expressions re-connect the distiller to its Colorado agrarian roots and creates an authentic experience for visitors.

The site layout of the facility is organized to express the sequence and emphasize the craft of fine whiskey distilling, aging, and bottling which creates an efficient and cohesive campus. THe design creates an agrarian idyll in a industrial urban setting. The perimeter of the site is defined by a polarized solar screen conceived as dynamic signage that celebrates the brand and invites passers-by to engage in the process of making and enjoying spirits.
