Verdant Brewing Co. Taproom, Penryn
Verdant Brewing Co. approached us back in 2019 to help facilitate their move into a large industrial unit in Penryn, Cornwall.
The new unit was run down and needed a complete overhaul to bring it into the 21st century.
The brief was to develop the building to allow the production side of the business to flourish, in a highly functional factory with massively increased capacity and, to deliver a public space in the form of the Tap room, that would allow the local community to feel part of the business.
It was also key for Verdant to develop a more sustainable building and to involve as many local Suppliers and Trades people as possible.
To start, we gained planning for change of use and for the external modifications to the site, which included a large 65kw solar installation and external groundworks and associated industrial plant installation. We worked closely with the team at Verdant to design & develop the working layout of the whole brewery.
Within the unit, we plotted the layout & installation of the brew house, brewery working layouts and the design and installation of the staff quarters, lab and workshop. This was then followed by the design and installation of the Staff Offices and Taproom Bar.
The interior of the Offices and Tap room was built around a new steel frame installation and steel framed glazing alongside natural materials to provide a light and contemporary interior space. Views from the public spaces into the working brewery were paramount to the design.
