  • Industry Food / Beverage,
  • Studio 13 Architects has been tasked with the design for the new offices of Ajinomoto, a Japanese food company, located in Istanbul, Turkey.

    Thinking of new office for Ajinomoto our purpose was to create special space, that would compliment the company, be its visitcard and also bring new qualities for people who are working in the office as well as visitors. We tried to emphasize its rich traditions and Japanese roots by simple, elegant treatment of space, yet modern and comfortable. Company’s motto Eat Well, Live Well brings us close to nature which we tried to emphasize by natural materials.

    Wood, stone and bare concrete creates link between Ajinomoto corporate identity and its green approach. Natural color palette was used.
