In a corner space, surrounded by the most important hotels of Mexico City, facing Reforma, the ceremonial boulevard created in the 19th century by Maximilian Habsburg as Emperor of Mexico and across the street from Chapultepec, one of the largest urban parks in the world, stands Barberia Royal, a barbershop that offers services as privileged as its location. Through our design we wanted to incorporate the bits and pieces of a previous proposal that was under construction on the site for a different barbershop that was never finished, recycling mismatching moldings and other wooden elements almost randomly, fitting them in a contemporary form that still references the traditional symbols of European royalty. The lower half of the space relates in colors and materials to the long standing heritage of traditional barbershops including a black and white hexagonal tiles floor with a flower pattern and the Royal name greeting all the patrons at the entrance.
