Gen1 Architectural Group: Breweries, Wineries, and Distilleries


West Michigan is alive with the entrepreneurial spirit, or should we say "spirits." Locally-owned micro-breweries, wineries, and distilleries are opening throughout Michigan, and Gen1 Architectural Group is proud to be playing a large role in helping these small startups realize their dreams. Here are some of the exciting new projects we've handled in the last year:

Brew Merchant, Holland Michigan

Gen1 Architectural Brew Merchant Holland Michigan Michigan

Gen1 Architectural Group is proud to have played a role in helping the owners of Brew Merchant realize their dream.

Brew Merchant is a brand-new concept to Washington Square in Holland, MI. A place where beer lovers will be able to enjoy lesser-known and higher quality brews that are not readily available together in one place.

Gen1's renovation planned brings new life to the structure's original floors and brick walls, creating a warm, inviting location for beer lovers to gather .

One interesting and challenging aspect to this project was the construction of a through-way that joins two adjacent buildings with their own walls, joining the two rooms together to create multiple entertainment and layout options for the Brew Merchant.

Custom Wine Cellar

Gen1 Architectural Custom Wine Cellar West Michigan

Gen1 Architectural Group is thrilled to share this amazing wine cellar. Designed for a corporate retreat center, this climate-controlled wine cellar (in an actual basement, of course) is home for up to 1,400 bottles of wine from around the world.

This 10' by 15' wine cellar includes a wine cooler, real brick columns, and custom-built redwood wine racks. The room also features as its centerpiece a large wood block table salvaged from the centers' old kitchen facility. The result is a beautiful and functional wine cellar that's not only the perfect wine storage space, but also a comfortable gathering place for guests to relax and enjoy a glass or two of wine.
