In 2016, Brass Ring Spirit Brands hired McMillan Pazdan Smith to guide them in creating the new home for their award-winning Dark Corner Distillery micro-distillery. The facility was designed to house both their office space and the actual production facility for their lines of small batch, craft moonshine, aged whiskey, gin, and absinthe, among other specialty liquors.
Working closely with the client, the design team transformed an existing 15,000 SF warehouse into a functional, flexible production space that clearly speaks to the craft movement’s ethos of modern quality and timeless aesthetics. The mid-century structure’s walls were carefully renovated around the new floor plan. A custom metal roof was fabricated from material salvaged from a local military aircraft hangar.
