Jolly Beauty Salon in Kyiv - it is a minimalistic functional space and oasis of self care. Natural materials, raw textures, soft color palette, wavy shapes of the decorative elements call to mind the image of a sandy beach.
Lighting design, wooden details, vintage furniture create coziness inside of a clean minimalist interior.
The object, which previously served as a hairdressing salon, is located on the 1st floor of the 1950s building on the Lesya Ukrainka Boulevard in the business center of the city. Exterior blends with the historic character of the building, its color and style. The facade was cleaned from signboards and graffiti, to emphasize the visual rhythm of the object.
Makeup mirrors are made of oak veneer and provided with additional lighting.
The wooden furniture and the massage table are made of the similar oak veneer.
The area of simultaneous service is separated by a sliding partition made of glass.
We paid special attention to the process of design and realization of the entrance group. Since the salon is located above the ground on the hill, our target was to develop a comfortable entrance with a staircase wide enough. Furthermore, a staircase should not disturb the movement of pedestrians. We came up with the idea of a staircase and awning with no visible fasteners. Our constructor developed the cantilever staircase and the platform, covered with travertine. We were searching for this material all over Ukraine, and we succeeded at the last moment, just in time.
