Salon O in Oita-city, Oita, Japan by Takao Shiotsuka Atelier

Salon O is a hairsalon built in the suburbs. A mountain type design code is repeated from facade and an opening to interior design which brings the visual effect as an icon to construction.

“Paper-cutting” will be a motif if it says.It seems to assemble space while connecting the paper which clipped out a chevron figure. A repetition of the same figure produces the delicate deviation from the every day required of a hair salon. And it gives the whole building fictiveness.
