This proposal is dedicated to a 3-storey building located in
Paisley, ON, which is going to be renovated as a brewery &
pub. Previously being a millwork station, the building is facing
south and is connected to the existing 2-storey
apartment on the left. To take the advantage of the sun path,
the PVC roof would be sloped at 8 degrees towards the south,
which provides maximum efficiency with solar panels on top.
The southeast side is going to be mostly open with curtain wall
glazing, to provide sunlight & views towards the front, while the
back of the building is mostly not visible from the outside, in
order to keep brewery equipment at minimum exposure to the
sun. The finish material would be corrugated metal siding
with variant colours such as wood finish to provide a natural
feeling and fit in with the local rural area.
The entrance is located at the front/south, and the side
entrance to the brewery is on the right/east, which is only
permitted for staff entry. The main stair is at the front,
exposed by the curtain wall, and up to the third floor, and
there’s a side exit at the back/north, where an exterior stair is
The first floor would be mainly occupied by brewery
equipment, which is only accessible to staff members.
The second floor would be mostly used as a pub & tasting room
while providing some culinary dishes as well. The restrooms
are also located on the second floor, with both male & female.
The third floor would be the dining area, and mostly occupied with tables and seats.
