The Westland Distillery was designed by the Urbanadd architectural practice and it is located in Seattle, Washington in a timber warehouse which was built in 1914 and used to manufacture cranes by the Ederer Crane Company.

The designers wanted to provide the visitors with a unique insight into the fermenting and distillation processes that are required to make whiskey. The project has a raw bar and a whiskey library along with a mash house, a still room and a barrel room which can hold up to 100 barrels which are aged in Westland’s Rackhouse on the Olympic Peninsula after they are filled.

The project contains the staff offices on the mezzanine and below them is a very modern QC lab with climate control. The main materials used in the construction are the reclaimed timber and raw steel in order to make evident the tradition which the family has in the logging industry and to blend in with the already existing timber structure of the warehouse.
