Text description provided by the architects. The owner, an avid mountain climber, told us that part of the appeal with climbing a mountain is that you never really know what will happen until you get there, and how soothing it is to experience something new every time out. He wanted the same kind of space built in a beauty salon, giving guests a new experience each time.

Floor Plan

First, we looked together with him to find a small property in a quiet neighborhood, where guests would feel the most welcome. We went for a spacious, open feel using a high ceiling framework and a stripped down interior with one station. We carefully selected the chair, sound equipment, large mirror and other station details which will come in physical contact with guests to create an experience, along with a desk and freely changeable wall-mounted storage in perforated board for the owner.

The reflection of the wall surface, ever-changing with the seasons and the taste of the owner and his diverse interests, will become the face of the salon. The guests will certainly feel how the space he creates will change over time.
