Stählemühle Distillery by Philipp Mainzer

Architect Philipp Mainzer directed the restoration of an old mill in Eigeltingen, near the shores of Lake Constance where a new showroom for Stählemühle, a purveyor of award-winning high-quality spirits, was constructed.

The restoration features three main programmatic components: the actual distillery, a showroom, and various tasting areas. Perhaps the most striking feature of the project is the materiality of the spaces. Raw concrete was used for the walls while bare asphalt was used for the floors, their (tastefully) rugged features contrasting with the highly refined equipment and polished bottles on display. The spirits are kept in large rounded jars, which act as lenses to magnify the texture of the walls behind. Sleek wood furnishings complete the scene of material refinement.
