Laura and Bea commissioned us to design their hair salon. The empty store had neither light, nor walls, nor floor. The goal was the integral construction of an interesting rectangular space of 5 x 10 meters.
We wanted to accentuate this longitudinal axis, forcing the space according to the main elements of the room, the beam and the pillars, making it wider and brighter. Two main interventions appear on the plan: the broadening of the facade, as a thick entrance and showcase, and the flexion of the background that hides the toilet and the office.
In between, the materiality of galvanized sheet unfolds in the space, endowing it with the main functions of hair salon: a reception, a dye lab and a shelf. In the same way, the material covers the front and the broken bottom of the store, amplifying the space with a mix of reflections.
The project follows the maximum exploitation of the resources to build an iconic and quality space. The colour, the industrial ceiling and the rough materials follow a simple, economic and sincere aesthetics.
