Layer-up / Hair salon design

Layer-up

Discipline: Interior Architecture

Layer-up

Discipline: Interior Architecture

The challenge: Building a hair salon in a long and narrow space, where it is impossible to include a mezzanine. The solution: a 'staircase as an installation' to accommodate both the space constraints and the client’s budget. The staircase was constructed as a transparent installation and placed in the middle of the space to bridge a large vertical distance. An extra platform was added to expand functionality. Steel bars were used for versatility. They serve as railings, allow air movement, and avoid visual obstruction.
