Spiralab Chemical Research Laboratory in Chiba, Chiba Prefecture, Japan by KINO Architects:

This building is a new chemical research laboratory for a world leading materials development corporation. It is on a large site in an industrial area near Tokyo Bay.

We responded to the request for “research efficiency” by using flexible experimental rooms where researchers can adjust their research space according to their needs. To the requests for “high security” and “comfort” we responded with high-security, and high-comfort offices and break areas throughout the entire building. We responded to the request for “symbolism” with symbolic architecture that helps promote the companies abilities to the world.
