The proposal seeks to provide a new home for Sullivans Cove Distillery - makers of the world’s best single malt whisky. Inspired by the Sullivans way of making whisky, the landscape has been approached in a similar minimal intervention approach – with care, authenticity, and careful intervention into the precious Derwent River - timtumili minanya precinct. The new Sullivans Cove Distillery will see the careful restoration of the Drill Hall, Residence structure and introduction of the new Shadow Building (The Productive Distillery). Similarly, the landscape works will restore the cultural and ecological landscape of which the buildings sit within.
A landscape of repair and relics, filled with native Australian flora and meandering paths, as well as gathering and social spaces for visitors to enjoy. The site will also be used to compliment the already celebrated events Hobart has growing recognition for. The restoration of these historic dwellings and its landscape will enliven Huon Quays, creating a new cultural destination in Hobart for local and international visitors alike to enjoy. Stringent design principles and methodologies have been adopted, along with the site specific opportunities and constraints, to ensure that the sites development is conducted with due consideration of the sites significant sensitive cultural heritage, and to demonstrate best practice in environmental, cultural and social sustainability. The site has been adaptively reactivated to provide settings for an array of new activities.
