Project thesis – Perfume Factory

The brief for Studio 11 was “Pleasure” and our interpretation of it on site. During my first site visit, I couldn’t ignore the mixing of aromas emanating from perfume shops and soap-stores surrounding me. It was because of this that I wanted to elucidate the act of mixing scents and, as a result, decided to design a perfume factory centred around wildflowers that can grow in the City of Brighton and Hove, East Sussex.
Overview

The proposal lies atop a busy road in central Brighton and the strategy employed was that of a steel truss superstructure suspended from concrete columns which pierce existing chimneys on party walls, utilising the strongest points on the existing site. Using steel cables, the superstructure then suspends the substructure; the perfume factory. The shape of the perfume factory is resonant of alchemical instruments used in the ancient art of perfumery, namely their copper materiality and their flute-like aperture. The circulation about the building allows for a tourist route through the factory which also bridges the unused rooftops on site, turning them into wildlife gardens for the community as well as supplying flowers to make perfume.
