Description  

Designed for the manufacture of phytochemicals, this building is the perfect example of RBTA regionalist period, with large cubic volumes suspended in the void and special attention given to the design details.

The building is of exposed traditional red brick, with large glazed window openings.  Conceived as a single building, it reveals itself as three pavilions which have been adapted to the undulating site.

The different species of plants along the façade and the domestic appearance of the building facilitated its integration into what was a rural setting at the time, and it has been taken to be a private villa for decades.

The progressive degradation of the area as a result of indiscriminate industrial development has left the laboratories looking today like a lush green garden amid a sea of eyesores.
