Gillespies has toasted the new year with distiller Erdington Group, which is building a whisky plant and visitor centre as part of a £100m expansion.
The landscape architect will work with architect Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners on the project for the Macallan Estate in Speyside, north-east Scotland.
"The Macallan is recognised as a marque of excellence and innovation," said a practice spokeswoman. "It is one of the world's best-loved premium whiskies.
"The new facility aims to reflect these characteristics in a design that complements the natural beauty of the area and the estate."
A grassed, mounded roof will ripple across the top of the building, which hugs the landscape and is reached by steps built into landscaped slopes. "The ethos of the landscape design is to work with the architects to meld the facility seamlessly within its landscape so it becomes part of the estate's parkland."
Television Centre Redevelopment scheme
Plans to redevelop the iconic BBC Television Centre in Shepherd's Bush into a mixed-use project retaining its listed buildings and famous forecourt won planning approval last week.
Gillespies will work with architects from AHMM to blend open spaces, parkland and other landscapes within a de-cluttered architectural style.
"For the first time the Television Centre will be opened up to the public and its famous forecourt remodelled.
"The redevelopment will also provide connectivity with the local area including Hammersmith Park. The new offices will be aimed at the creative sector and there will be several public uses."
