The cutting-edge roof is a masterpiece, comprising 1,800 single beams, 2,500 different roof elements, and 380,000 individual components, almost none of which are alike. It was masterminded by internationally acclaimed architect, Graham Stirk of Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners. “The Macallan estate truly is a special place; a place we have come to love and respect hugely,” Stirk says. “The vision was always ambitious, but this enabled us to challenge our own thinking to create something dramatic and awe-inspiring.”
And dramatic it is. The striking piece of contemporary design is cut into the slope of the ancient Scottish hills, with the roof covered in foliage, making it indiscernible from the rolling Speyside landscape in the most architecturally awesome fashion.
