Brushing hair and stretching

Spaces for brushing hair and stretching were combined in such a way to maintain the monumentality of each individual spaces, but in doing so an entirely different and almost playful space was created. Similar elements to both spaces were kept while also bringing in softer materials and color. Since both actions are fairly personal, an element of privacy was added by the addition of hanging fabric dividers that can be adjusted to meet individual’s needs. A soft carpet was added to reduce ambient sound and provide soft cushion to sit and brush hair or do stretching. Ample daylighting was brought from the glazing that surronds three sides of the space and the skylight element that had added the monumentality of the individual spaces.
