— Bombay Sapphire

British designer Thomas Heatherwick has completed work on a new complex for gin company Bombay Sapphire in Hampshire, England, including two sculptural glasshouses that are heated using warm air created during the distilling process.

Heatherwick, whose high profile projects include the 2012 Olympic Cauldron and the British pavilion at the Shanghai World Expo 2010, has completed a renovation of a cluster of existing red brick buildings at Laverstock Mill and added two glasshouses for growing plants that are used to flavour the gin produced by Bombay Sapphire.

 

The existing buildings at the complex were built during the Victorian era to house a mill that produced paper for English bank notes. The buildings were later abandoned and left derelict until the complex was bought by Bombay Sapphire who commissioned Heatherwick to overhaul the site, creating a new distillery and visitors’ centre.
