The Shelby Herrick Salon is located on the ground floor of the newly constructed Woodside Village Apartments. The original space was tall and narrow so it was our goal to bring the scale of the volume down to a more human and intimate scale. An angular ceiling greets the customer at the front door and undulates all the way to the back of the space where it folds to form the second floor mezzanine. A series of coves around the ceilings make them appear as if they float above your head. The blackened steel rod sculptural elements help screen the activities behind while allowing natural light to filter through. The sculptures sway with the movements of the salon and evoke a sense of taming loose strands into an ordered pattern. The left side of the space houses the serene and calming spaces which are painted blue and tucked under a lower ceiling. The custom black stained white oak cabinets were also designed, fabricated and installed by Studio Build.
