This beauty salon is located on a street lined with large suburban stores. The repetition of the mountainous design code, from the facade, openings to the interior, gives the architecture an iconic visual effect. Using the motif of “paper cutout”, it is like assembling a space by piecing together a piece of paper cut out a mountain-shaped figure. The repetition of the same shape creates a slight departure from the everyday life that is necessary for a salon, and gives the entire building a fictional atmosphere.
