Simple yet also complex | De Leon & Primmer Architecture Workshop9:45 AM
Whisky loving firm, De Leon & Primmer Architecture Workshop, were challenged to design a visitor center for Kentucky Wild Turkey Bourbon Distillery. Their design reflects the context and history of the distillery using form and materials which makes this architecture significantly attractive.
The visitor center contextually resembles a barn in shape, and it is clad in cedar siding stained black that are set in a herringbone pattern to provide the exterior a varied texture.
White oak, which Whisky barrels are made of, are used in the interior to create contrast with the exterior finish and spread the aroma of Bourbon.
As a result, the love for the taste of the Bourbon, history and context of the distillery are all minimized into a simple silhouette of a barn.
