Flavor Paper specializes in custom hand screen printing wallpaper and it needs new space for wallpaper production and the best way to show their creation to the public. The former parking structure is transformed by the architect to house a showroom, production facility, eco-roof deck, and two residential levels as well.

In the middle of the ground floor space, there are two 50 foot long wallpaper screening tables that allow the mirrored ceiling to reflect the pattern and color of the paper, transmitting it out through the glass canopy to the pedestrian traffic and street.
