The project is for the refurbishment and extension of these existing buildings to greatly enhance the visitor experience while respecting the historic character and setting of the distillery as well as the image of the Glencadam brand.
The new Visitor Centre brings a rich visitor experience to the historic whisky site and will provide a shop, exhibition space, tasting rooms, a whisky lounge, and a café and function room on the first floor. Meanwhile the conversion of the adjacent VIP Suite seeks to foster an experience of luxury and welcome to the Distilleries most valued clientele.
The site strategy involves the formation of a new car parking area for guests to the Visitor Centre at the South East plot. A gentle slope will take guests on a journey through new landscaping works, past the barrel holding area and the copper still which will positioned adjacent to the Centre.
The proposal seeks to form a vernacular language utilising a robust yet dignified palette of materials to create variety in elevational approach and character drawing cues from traditional and contemporary distillery vernacular to embed the building within its context whilst creating a world-class visitor experience.
The design solution involves the re use of an existing cottage currently used to greet VIP guests to the Distillery. A two storey-stone Building which faces the Visitor Centre on the opposite side. The proposal for the VIP Suite cottage involves the careful re-planning of the internal floor plans. A kitchen, WCs and tasting area is proposed on the first floor, with an addition of a staircase which takes guests up to the first floor and an additional bar and tasting area. Whilst most of the alterations are internal, a large glazed Dormer addition is proposed for the First Floor tasting room which will open the space and fill the area with light.
The proposals seek to develop a vernacular language seeking to honour the local architecture and existing buildings. Utilising a robust yet dignified palette of materials the new Visitor Centre will be of a character befitting to the historic distillery.
