“SENSE SALON” is a styling brand that has paid attention to customizing and improving the unique image of each guest for 20 years.
It is the first renovation project of the old store. Therefore, the design team redefines the subconscious spiritual world by the expression of the interior from the literal meaning of the brand name “SENSE”. Besides, the team focuses on how to grasp and deal with the relationship between natural landscape and futurism, magnify the functional attributes of “SENSE” to regulate nature. Finally, the team intends to create a place for dialogue with consciousness and intuition in a straightforward and penetrating way.
Besides, the design team locked the perspective on “wave” in the process of exploring the visual symbols of the project. In fact, the wave is a physical phenomenon in which disturbance or information propagates in space, and the motion of any type of wave is always accompanied by the transfer of energy. Moreover, “wave” can not only express the divergence of thinking but also widely exist in the natural world. What’s more, it extends around with the “present” as the origin, establishes endless and unlimited dimensions, and permeates the rich structural language in the scene experience, which is different from the unidirectional timeline.
A large number of geometric terms such as circles, rings, and arcs are used to express the control and ritual sense of “waves” in the project, which breaks the regular and average interior division of the original structure of the building. Besides, the plane layout and moving line are radiated from the center to the surrounding area according to different functional attributes and opening degrees taking the column in the center of the interior as the center.
As the project is located in the old streets of Chengdu, the facade avoids the completely open design to avoid the market atmosphere brought by the streets. The curved surface structure naturally connects the street while enhancing the uniqueness of the project. Besides, the closed shape makes the internal area completely isolated from the outside world. What’s more, the natural texture collides with the geometric structure, creating a sense of mystery and ritual subtly.
As a prelude to entering the internal main area, the reception area is deliberately separated from the main area in terms of lights and materials. Therefore, it acts as a psychological buffer for new customers. Besides, the lights in the rest area cycle every three hours, simulating the natural process from sunrise to sunset.
主区域 MAIN AREA
The main working area is located in the center of the interior, which is the initial point of energy accumulation and divergence. The metal structure in which the center of the circle runs through the area is based on the circular layout, the mirror position is divided equidistant, and the inner and outer double-layer seats are diffused step by step, which ensures the basic use and re-discusses the possibility of the layout of the workplace. it also provides a standard guide for the spatial moving line.
The reception area and the main working area are connected in series with corridors, which is the position where the “waves” of the two frequencies interfere with each other. The spatial rhythm changes from strong to weak here. Besides, the deliberately low floor height emphasizes the contrast that the interior is suppressed first and then raised.
包间 VIP ROOM
Eight enclosed rooms surround the main area, and U-shaped glass weakens the demarcation point between the two, which provides sufficient privacy to separate small parts.
其他区域 OTHER AREAS
Washing area, perm area, staff rest area are divided according to regional functions, and they are orderly integration in the “wave” boundary combined with corridors and walkways.
The whole installation at the center of the interior consists of a simulated boulder, a LED screen, a metal ring frame, and a movable mirror. The use of different materials creates a surreal sense of collision, retains the overall consciousness, and enriches the feeling of detail, reflecting the symbiotic relationship.
Besides, simulation boulder wrapped from the growth of the LED screen. And the use of different media as a unit in the interior synchronizes the subtle changes of the scene atmosphere and light and shadow. Moreover, the mobile digital landscape provides a visual picture of the intended world. Also, the metal ring structure spreads out in a waveform around the central multimedia installation, and the circular mirror on the ring makes customers can observe themselves from multiple angles through the specular reflection in the process of moving. What’s more, the convex lens on the round mirror can magnify the image on the LED screen, providing customers with a more microscopic visual experience.
Stone, as the most primitive element in nature, exists in every corner of the project in the most direct, fast, and non-aggressive way, which is different from the hard sense of softening with soft materials in the past. Besides, it connects all the media in the project, blurring the boundaries between indoor and outdoor, architecture and nature, reality, and fantasy.
