NOTE:

This adaptive reuse of a timber warehouse structure, built in 1914 and originally used for manufacturing cranes by Seattle’s Ederer Crane Company, is the new home of Westland Distillery.The design team focused on weaving the guest tour experience seamlessly into the fermenting and distillation processes, offering guests a unique perspective on the time-honored art of making whiskey.

Materials such as reclaimed, rough-hewn timber and raw steel were utilized to respect the owners’ family history in the logging industry and to recall the existing warehouse timber structure.
