Beauty Salon in Osaka
This beauty salon is located on a busy 6-lane street of Osaka, surrounded by the hectic life of the megalopolis. 10 years after opening of the place, the owner decided to embark on a remodel and bring the appearance in sync with the business' aesthetic identity. Architect Tsubasa Iwahashi was hired to make this transition happen.
On March 30, 2013 the salon was reopened with the new minimalist look. The wide entrance allows to see the serene interior, offering a beautiful combination of white with light wood elements. The space is divided in three areas - reception, styling and a hidden section for beauty procedures. The austerity of the overall design reflects the owner's philosophy. It also cleverly distinguishes the building among its surroundings.
