We joined forces with Four Pillars Gin to create a new, immersive gin experience in their birthplace, Healesville. Born and raised in this stunning part of the Yarra Valley surrounded by mountains and temperate rainforest, throughout the design we acknowledge Four Pillars’ origin, their history, and their deep connection to the place where it all began.
The expansion delivers a much-needed new production space, outdoor gin garden, tuckshop, dedicated gin shop, custom-built bar, and sensational events space.
100% fossil fuel-free, sustainability has been embedded throughout the design from the copper veil, the 100 kW solar rooftop, the recycled masonry throughout to a restrained and crafted natural material palette that infuses hints of nature into this exceptional distillery installation. Ongoing waste minimisation was important to the project. All steel, concrete, and timber waste was recycled during construction. None of the excavation went to landfill. Gin is piped directly into the main bar from production through featured copper pipes to reduce glass waste and upholstery is designed using “pineapple leather” made from waste pineapple fibre.
