This project is a factory and laboratory of a fragrance manufacturing company. The building was designed as aesthetically as possible to avoid a plant with high and wide walls, with a mysterious existence like Black Box to the city.
Placed the entrance to the building is a sign that describes the flavor being produced inside. On the 2nd floor, the laboratory has buffer zones with expand-metal screen-walls, which connect with not only the inside and outside but also the working staff and the passersby.
