“Designing for the beauty world is all about stripping away and authenticity. It was only a matter of time before it fell into the hands of the architects.” Vogue

The design introduces a series of moveable layers and elements to this top-floor space and the salon below to break it down into pockets of activity blurring the traditional boundaries between retail, gallery, cafe, and photography studio.
