From the architect. It is a hair salon on the ground floor of a building in Nakazakicho, Osaka.

Nakazakicho is a town consisted of Nagaya (Japanese style terraced houses) and low-rise apartments, and narrow curved alleyways are functioning as the means of connection for the people and local community,

The building of the hair salon is also facing a gently-curved alleyway, and we designed the space as to make a cave towards the front street, as the entrance facade would seem to be blend in with the street and the scenery of the diverse town.

Inside the cave, rough face oak panels beautifully deliver the light as lines. Mirrors are each a unique shape as well, height, width, and depth vary to correspond with the uneven expressions on the oak wall.
