Salon O, Japan – Takao Shiotsuka Atelier
This beautiful hair salon in Japan is from Takao Shiotsuka Atelier, is a celebration of simplicity, clarity and identity. The building plays on its modern clean design, allowing the windows to draw the visitor and passer by into the internal. The focus of the external is in fact the internal processes – the facade is merely a presentation of the beautiful internal space, and the activities that take place.
“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”, Takao Shiotsuka Atelier
