The concept idea for the façades was to use the images that everybody have in their mind when we talk about the human habit of smoking: cigarettes, smoke and tobacco leaves. The first one uses the simile of the cigarette paper unwrapped, which completely covers the factory with a sinuous curve trying to wrap the empty large volume. The volume of the office building and rooms for employees, responds on the basis of a module pattern, taken from the nerves that can be found on a tobacco leave and simulating a pattern of the ancient Chinese tradition. In the second stage, the façade idea is just taking a picture about the cigarette smoke, and digitizing it we can adapt to transform into our main image.
