High West Distillery, Park City UT
The design challenge of this exhibit was to tell the origin story of High West and to create a memorable Distillery tour.
The High West story is one of Cowboys, Miners, Trappers and Whiskey Makers. It’s also a story of land protection and prairie preservation.
The new Distillery is located in the drop-dead high desert country with a backdrop of mountains and blue sky. To compliment this location and the Prairie style of architecture Trace chose to use materials such as sun-rusted CorTen steel, rough cut timber and black and white historic photos. This exhibit is arguably the heaviest exhibit Trace has done to date, and possibly the most beautiful.
