Downtown Retail Spaces
Designs for this nightclub and hair salon make use of fluid forms to fit different uses into unconventional spaces. A long narrow street front space is made more lively with the introduction of ramps and long curved walls that weave in and out of the many columns inside. The use of undulating walls suggests different spaces without creating closed rooms. The same wall can be curved a different direction to create privacy without hard barriers – a good strategy for hiding back of house spaces from view while allowing good flow for service.
