description: Simone Gatto is one the world renounced citric essence manufacturers based in Messina. The best quality is their slogan as honor to the lemon farming specialty in Sicily. The factory floor area will expand to double of its current size in three years time and extra administrative space is in need. With the complex program and activities for a new office, children crèche, direct accommodations, our design attempts to simply and smooth the conflicts within. The project folds the complex organizational diagram into a continuous wrapping and warping space where shortcuts and quick links are means intended to make connection from one space to the other more effective and efficient. This also allows strategic open and closure of such thresholds to reconfigured the layout and spatial performance of the whole project.
