Firmenich, an international producer of perfumery and flavor chemicals in business for over 115 years, was interested in a design that would highlight the firmsí history, values and innovative production process. Firmenich decided to renovate their existing two floors on Madison Avenue in Manhattanís Plaza District. The Montroy Andersen DeMarco team was tasked with renovating around Firmenichís existing operations while relocating the firmís flavor and fragrance laboratory to the upper of the two floors.
The project combines the warm residential elements such as wood flooring, elegant LED lighting, and custom millwork with the innovative and cutting-edge design for the lab and marketing departments. The custom reception desk features tiles with a Japanese petal motif and the use of double glazed glass walls allows for enhanced acoustic privacy.
The lab space features a custom designed HVAC system with advanced temperature, humidity and circulation controls while incorporating and clean, efficient and well organized work environment.
