반응형

키에프 중심가에 위치한 뷰티살롱의 인테리어 컨셉은 낯선 공간의 경험을 통해 생성되는 긴장감을 위해 거대한 콘크리트 덩어리와 인더스트리얼 분위기가 나는 메탈소재를 불규칙적인 형태로 접합, 구현하였다.

Located in Kyiv’s historic centre, Say No Mo is a new beauty salon that wows visitors with its avant-garde aesthetic and subversive ambience. Interior architects balbek bureau have married finesse and sophistication with urban grit and industrial references in a space of effortless elegance and lyrical imperfection that encapsulates the owner’s mission to upend conventional notions of beauty salons as well as the industry’s gender divide. Housed on the ground floor of a century old building, with additional rooms in the basement, the designers took advantage of the 4-metre high ceilings and the massive masonry structure to create a sequence of highly sculptural spaces with the help of cast concrete and curved golden panels.

Separating the reception and lounge area in the front from the bar area at the heart of the venue – the latter is used both for beauty services and cocktail receptions – is what appears to be a blasted wall. Conceived as a metaphor for the crumbling stereotypes in the beauty industry, the “crumbling” cast-in-situ concrete arch took more than 4 months to construct and weighs several hundred kilograms. Cast-in-situ concrete was also used to create the complimentary reception desk in the shape of a block of stone whose monolithic form belies its functionality. The rough, industrial feel of the cast concrete chunks is then echoed in the external wall’s exposed brickwork and the intentionally crude welding seams of the bar counter’s metal plating. At the same time, polished concrete floors, white-painted air ducts and cable trays, and a sleek selection of minimalist contemporary furniture imbue the space with a sense of cool sophistication.
