Picture a 100-year-old building in a quiet street in Charlottenburg. The ground floor was once residential, then became a bakery and later — an artist’s studio. Our client spent a long time looking for the perfect space for her salon, and this was love at first sight.
We inherited a space with original moulding, high ceilings, antique oak door frames and a working chimney. Our job was to rethink the rooms without changing the proportions, and create a relaxing atmosphere that still carried a reassuring sense of medical immaculateness.
The lounge area with its cozy fireplace is the heart of the clinic, so it made perfect sense for it to be the centre of the new design. We decided that two rooms for medical procedures needed total privacy, whereas the manicure and pedicure areas would do well being integrated into the main space. We installed corrugated glass and metal screens, which catch and play with the light to create a soft glow.
A painting from the owner’s friend decorates the wall of the manicure zone. The lounge opens to a brow bar and make up area.
The brick wall we discovered under the wall plaster was kept exposed with a simple varnish.
This was previously a utility room with unfinished walls, no hot water and a clunky outdated gas heater in the corner. We dressed the walls and ceiling, plumbed in hot water, fitted out new workspaces, covered up the heater and put in storage for medical supplies.
