SHED 22, WELLINGTON BREWING COMPANY
PROJECT TYPE: HERITAGE

CLIENT: WILLIS BOND AND CO

PROJECT TIMEFRAME: 2002
Shed 22, Wellington Brewing Company, is another iconic heritage project in the Taranaki Wharf area which has become an integral part of the highly popular Wellington waterfront.
Shed 22 was built in 1922 as a woolstore. LT McGuinness worked with Willis Bond and Co and Athfield Architects to give it a new lease of life with a bar, restaurant, function room, offices and a working brewery all part of the development plan.
Special care was taken to preserve the building’s unique aspects, which meant erecting a new internal structure within the existing shell.
The brewery incorporates some highly sophisticated technology, and several new beers in the Mac’s range have been developed there. The public can view the brewery in operation. Beverage company Lion Nathan has its regional head office in the premises.
