"You can work slowly. You can work quietly.

[interior design] The entrance attracted external attention through soft curved surfaces and front glass windows, leading to a visual connection with the inside. The counter space gently induced the movement with a mass of curves and separated the main space from the lobby visually, physically, and functionally. The main space consists of waiting space, an individual procedure space, and a VIP room, and the overall sense of space was emphasized by minimizing the barrier. The front window of the main space gives a sense of visual openness and distinguishes it from the lobby space with a rising ceiling. Spaces that require separate gaze blocking, such as employee rest areas, VIP rooms, and shampoo rooms, shared the overall concept and flow using curved structures. In particular, individual treatment spaces focused on the characteristics of "sharing," allowing individual designers to secure as much space as possible, dividing the space into white chiffon curtains, and creating an elegant atmosphere. [material] The combination of travertine and curves, which used beige and gray colors to form a simple and warm atmosphere and preserve the natural texture, inspired visual and tactile interest in space.
