Working closely with the client and his design team, Crosbie Projects was selected to create this unique and creatively inspiring hair salon. Drawing on elements from the first Prema salon at Bondi Junction, the directive was to transform 116 square metres of prime Crown Street real estate into a playground for creativity. We were happy to accommodate the client’s request to be involved during the fitout phase as he tweaked and changed certain elements of the design; much to everyone’s dismay. We never knew what new idea or change was waiting for us every morning we came to site, however unlike most retail fitouts, we had time on our side with this project.
In the end it was all worth it. The collaboration of client, contractor and designer had achieved a thrilling result. The use of raw, rustic and recycled materials is evident throughout the salon such as:
- » The structural steel beams and recycled railway sleepers in the shopfront
- » Timber architraves and window frames with stained glass recycled into cutting station mirrors.
- » Folded sheet metal with a rust finish to create retail shelving and cutting station benches.
