Shilling is a new brewery and bar in Glasgow, Scotland. Cited in a former mid-century bank building it benefits from a triple height merchant hall and subterranean vaults which now house the venue’s restrooms. The general arrangement is split in two with a bar and brewing tanks on one side of the main hall and a raised dining platform on the other. Situated in between the two is the open food pass. A hive of activity immediately visible upon entry the open plan show kitchen beyond the pass centres around a newly installed feature pizza oven.

Alongside the interiors a new visual identity was created for the business. Subtle references to malting hops and the brewing process that is now located on the site were used to great effect in upholstery as well as in bespoke digital assets and print collateral.
