“Bellezza” is a brand-new proposal for a beauty salon, located in Kalamaria, Thessaloniki-Greece. The architectural brief included two distinctive spaces for extended services related to nail manicures and feet care, a space for a wide spectrum of face and body treatments, an ancillary space fully equipped with sterilizers & autoclaves, a wc and an info desk- cashier point. The challenge of the project was to transform a small and open plan space with clear damages into a functional, warm and aesthetically outstanding salon. Moreover, according to the brief, the space should comprise of significant and distinguishable units. The design explores the sequences of frames and furnishing, that divide space into functional units. The units create a feeling of familiar space and ease of movement with a layered sense of interior procession.
