Braunstein Taphouse is designed for craft beer production….and disassembly

Each of the seven visitor points are located in a transformation pivot - from urban condition to nature or from land to water. The transformation from one condition to the other frames the landscape and creates a new experience of nature by breaking down its enormous scale into smaller spaces and stor... Altro
