Transformed Mill Into Sleek Showroom Distillery
Philipp Mainzer directed the restoration of an old mill in Eigeltingen, near the shores of Lake Constance. Built for Stählemühle, a purveyor of award-winning high-quality spirits, the restoration features three main programmatic components: the actual distillery, a showroom, and various tasting areas.
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.
