Our Building

The team responsible for realising Ad Gefrin is world class. Together we are delivering a destination that whilst echoing the aesthetic of the great halls of Northumbrian kings who lived here centuries ago, will marry the latest technological efficiencies and sustainable design practices with meticulous attention to detail, the innovative use of traditional and contemporary materials and the finest of finishes.

The building design team is led by Northumbrian architect, Richard Elphick supported by Todd Milburn, Red Fox, and JCP.  Whilst the interiors are the inspiration of internationally renowned Studio MB of Edinburgh, and the lighting, the domain of Michael Grubb Studio. Our stills in our distillery are being made by fourth generation family firm, Forsyths Ltd, who have designed, built and supplied distillation equipment to create spirits around the world.

From early in the construction phase, under the watchful eye of Brims Construction Ltd, we have been supporting the local communities companies and craftspeople. Many hands are going into making Ad Gefrin and our individual heroes are too many to mention, so many of them local, and all of them able to take pride in the quality of their workmanship and attention to detail. They are all integral to the statement building we are creating.
