The Scotch Malt Whisky Society, Edinburgh
This project is a sensitive insertion of contemporary interior elements into a traditional New Town house. Simple but strong devices are used to create a memorable interior, focused on malt whisky. A high oak-clad bar counter is paired with a wrap-around oak back bar. The regular pattern of shelving for whisky bottles is repeated in the south-facing window of the lounge. Here glass shelves support a variety of whiskies which glow in the light.
