Soderstrom Architects’ Ferar Wine & Spirits Studio has a long and successful track record producing the highest quality architectural designs, with a creative yet practical approach to meeting clients’ needs. Our projects have ranged from wineries in pastoral settings to the conversion of aged industrial buildings into urban distilleries.
Each step in the process of making fine distilled spirits takes a combination of art and science. Similarly, the creation of a building from the initial concept to the final physical structure calls for both art and science to create a facility which is both functional and aesthetically pleasing.
As architects, we pride ourselves on having a holistic view of buildings and their sites. Similar to the winemaker’s concept of terroir – the idea that a glass of wine reflects not only the vintage but also the unique combination of soil, exposure, and the climate where it was grown – we want each building to capture and convey the special sense of place inherent in the site, be it a vineyard or a city block.
Our work has been showcased in publications around the world including Distiller Magazine, Wine Business Monthly, Practical Winery & Vineyard, Revue Des Oenologues (France), Kia Ora (New Zealand), and Cantine (Italy).
