Newburgh craft brewery to breathe new life into old steading
A 150 year old farm steading near Newburgh, Fife, is to be brought up to date through conversion to a brew house, fermenting room, presentation space and storage.

Old Parkhill Brewery will entail conversion of an existing farm steading, byre and barn by WellwoodLeslie Architects to form a unified whole, in a similar vein to nearby Lindores Abbey.

In their design statement the architects noted: “Repairs to the existing stone facades allows the building to tie old and new together, retaining the tone and scale of the existing barn and byre and minimising the visual impact of the proposed brewery.

“Removal of the existing metal profile roof and replacement with a slate roof is more sympathetic to the built fabric of the area with the building originally having been tiled.”

This approach will minimise demolition and ensure that any waste material which is generated can be re-used on site.

I like it. Fair play to them for looking to restore some nice historic buildings with character and bring them back into use. Always good to see projects like this, especially when they are done tastefully.
