Vigirom Chem Pvt Ltd is a predominantly export-oriented unit involved in the production and export of fragrance essences located on a farm of 14 acres in the rural outskirts of South Bangalore. The concept of the building has been to amalgamate seeming contradictions - modernity of a factory with the tradi-tionalism of the vernacular building, of tightly designed production lines with worker-friendly atmosphere, of pollution and eco-friendliness - of the past and the future. The construction of this building heralds a new opprooch to the use of local materials for industrial uses. The core intent of the exercise wos to create an edifice that addressed the problems of infusing a vernacular idiom to o westernised concept of mass-production. The building seems to have ad-dressed these seemingly opposing contradictions and brought about an integrated and holistic solution.
