COVER with EARTH
This new construction project for Cover with Earth, a hair salon led by the mastermind Katz, is a space that not only serves as a beauty parlor, but is a fusion of furniture and architecture, where rare vintage Scandinavian furniture is sold. The approach of design was to create a receptacle for these spaces that pursue beauty, where the main actors are the people and fittings.
The building is a two-story wooden structure, but has a split-level floor spatial configuration with five floor levels, creating a spatial connection between the upper and lower floors. The front road is a major bus route leading from Hon-Atsugi Station. The façade was given an iconic touch as a means of contributing to the revitalization of the area. The overarching them was for this place to become a point of origin for the awareness of beauty.
