From the architect. It is a hairsalon built in the suburbs. A mountain type design code is repeated from facade and an opening to interior design. This brings the visual effect as an icon to construction. "Paper-cutting" will be a motif if it says.

It seems to assemble space while connecting the paper which clipped out a chevron figure. A repetition of the same figure produces the delicate deviation from the every day required of a hair salon. And it gives the whole building fictiveness.

Location to be used only as a reference. It could indicate city/country but not exact address. Cite:"Salon O / Takao Shiotsuka Atelier" 26 Nov 2008. ArchDaily. Accessed . <http://www.archdaily.com/8203/salon-o-takao-shiotsuka-atelier/>
