donna hair salon

japanese design studio sides core have re-configured a hair salon without a facade. because of its secluded location, a plan was thought up to allow for effective information distribution. the original space uses partition walls to serve as a background that permits a person to be well contrasted when being photographed after a haircut. the dividing structures are painted white to allow for light reflection, and in order to fix gaps when the interior was removed, the chipped floor is mended with mortar in an attempt to make the room more expressive.
