This is a project for a beauty salon in Sannomiya, Chuo-ku, Kobe, Hyogo Prefecture. The challenge is to visualize the sophisticated atmosphere of the city and create a transparent and airy ambiance.

The design focuses on bringing natural light positively into the space through large open apertures while minimizing material and color elements with consideration for maintenance. The use of mirrors extensively provides a minimalistic transparency and a sense of openness. Custom-made chairs and fixtures, incorporating both modern and classic elements, add a lustrous touch to the space. As a result, functionality and a distinctive atmosphere coexist within the compact interior.
