Isle of Arran Distillers
We designed bonded warehouses for the site of the new distillery on the Isle of Arran for our client to use as a means of maturing Lagg whisky.
Isle of Arran Distillers asked us to incorporate a cask filling station and ensure adequate space to allow them to store casks for the cask society.
An important factor in the design process for this project was the siting of the warehousing. We used the site topography to utilise the lowest plateau, minimising the height and visual impact from the road. This consideration aims to not detract from the new distillery building or the natural landscape and surrounding scenic views.
The security lighting for the bonded warehouses takes the form of low impact downlighters, minimising the impact of light pollution. Similarly, the use of structure planting and topography will serve to conceal the lighting at night.
Materials and finishes
The materials were chosen to blend into the natural environment and the cladding design echoes the form of the distillery building and surrounding local landscape.
The cladding treatment also fragments the mass of the warehouses, with the introduction of a complimentary two-tone geometric pattern that echoes the roof shape of the nearby distillery building.
As part of the larger Lagg Distillery project, this building was completed in June 2019 and has attracted various award nominations. It continues to attract interest from visitors travelling across the globe and is fast becoming one of the best-known buildings on the Isle of Arran, much to our clients' delight.
