Mook Salon by Okuwada Takeshi - Okuwada Architects

Home > Winners > #124420


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Mook

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Salon

INSPIRATION:
The space is consisted of the untimbered oak panels which each has uneven face, The uneven look of the oak is a testament to the diversity of people who visit and operate the shop.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
It is a hair salon on the ground floor of a building in Nakazakicho, Nakazakicho is a town consisted of terraced house and low-rise apartment, and those narrow curved alleyways are functioning as the connection of the people and local community, The building of the hair salon as well is facing those gently-curved alleyway, and we consisted the space design as making a cave towards the front street, as the facade would seem to be blend in with the street, and the scenery of the diverse town.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Operation by salon owner and staff. 5 mirrors.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in April 2014 in Osaka and finished in August 2015

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Interior Space and Exhibition Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
For the renovation of the building, we started by creating cavities from the street to the back of the building to allow light to pass through. These cavities are covered with oak panels to soften and control the light a little, and to direct it from the street to the back of the building.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Renovation/85㎡/

TAGS:
salon, oak, japan, osaka

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Introduction of light in the city centre: the creation of a light cave from the street to the back of the building, bringing light into the ground floor rooms of the normally dark city centre. Embracing diversity: By arranging the uneven pre-sawn oak, we have succeeded in expressing the natural beauty of unevenness.

CHALLENGE:
The uneven oak was difficult to work with. The varying thicknesses, lengths and smoothness of the wood made it time consuming to construct. However, the hard work was worth it and the joy of completion was fantastic.
