In the village of Javornice, in southern Bohemia, is a distillery designed by Czech architects ADR in a converted 19th century farmhouse. But the building is used to do more than distil fruit.

More than just spirits: ADR s.r.o.’s Javornice Distillery

ADR s.r.o. is an architectural studio that recently completed a restoration and expansion project in the village of Javornice in the Bohemian region of the Czech Republic. A 19th century farmhouse has become a new distillery for the production of fruit liqueurs.

But the owners wanted to do things in style, and in addition to the distillery they have opened an old-fashioned pub with a dance hall, accommodation for residents and guests, a garage in place of the former barn, a liquor store, a fruit store, a refrigerated fermentation plant, a warehouse and a big garden with a vegetable patch.
ADR focused on preserving the building’s original appearance wherever possible, using traditional materials for the renovation and modern materials in the new parts of the construction.
