The tasting room showcases House Spirits’ vision and products while creating a dynamic space that is a thrill both to visit and taste in. OSMOSE design created a minimal yet sophisticated look by committing to a material pallet of black and gray through-dyed medium density ﬁberboard, clear vertical grain – solid stock and veneer Douglas ﬁr, and aluminum. All casework, bar lighting, and custom elements were fabricated and installed by ACME. Phase two was the build-out of a second location, the House Spirits Distillery Tasting Room and Retail Store located at the Portland International Airport. ACME played a significant role in the fabrication and installation of key elements at the world's first ever airport tasting room!
