The Village of Paisley is big on sharing their history with their visitors. By reimagining the mill into a beer house, the architecture pays homage to the history of the once functioning grist mill. The inclusion of public spaces such as the pub, art store and art workspace/gallery was thoughtfully inspired by Paisley’s goal of drawing in visitors into the village and wanting to increase their local arts and entertainment history. Breaking open the front façade with a large curtain wall was crucial so that people see inside the building and are enticed to come inside and stay a while. This big curtain wall also allows those inside to stay connected to the surrounding area.
