CURRENT SALON The owner of Current Salon wanted to draw people into the new location by creating a unique salon with studio-style open spaces—Soho-inspired, high-end, and chic. With a goal to make the salon experience a relaxing retreat, crisp white walls, Carrera marble, and polished brass accents contrast with rusticated concrete tiles and textural applied brick walls—the aesthetic of a sophisticated urban loft. Brushed brass custom mirrors also enhance the height of the space, while copper and brass lighting above the reception desk add sparkle and draw the eye from the street. Large, full-wall custom graphics create a strong identity for the salon—a vibrant eclectic backdrop. Shampoo stations are separated to create a more private experience, while the styling area is visible to the outside so passersby can see into the space. Current Salon features a color bar, which allows clients to partake in the hair coloring discussion, and watch as their custom color is mixed. There is also a private room for special events and bridal parties. Retail is available in backlit niches adjacent to the reception and waiting area; a coffee bar is available to serve customers while they have their hair processed; and comfortable custom banquette-style seating is designed as a feature as well as function.

ZAPATAT The retail space for this tattoo removal salon exudes a chic industrial aesthetic enlivened with lighting, stainless steel wall paneling, and metallic porcelain tile. The exposed hardware and rolling barn doors ďŹ nished in a dark teak laminate carry the industrial motif throughout the space. The materials palette was selected to allow modern industrial materials coexist with warmer, softer fabrics and colors. Ochre paint and suede, bright orange chairs, colored LED lights, and artwork make up the warm palette. The dichotomy of cool and warm, masculine and feminine serves to address the varied clientele and their emotions associated with the tattoo removal process. The reception, waiting, and treatment rooms are all designed to alleviate any feelings of unease.

CURVY GIRLS BRIDAL This unique bridal shop was designed to provide an environment where brides-to-be feel special and pampered. The design goal was to incorporate curves to complement and reinforce the brand. The space is located in the wedge-shaped corner of a boomerang shaped building, typically considered the least desirable space in a retail building because of the lower storefront window to square footage ratio of the space. Instead, the circular design concept uses the unique shape to its advantage maximizing the flow and movement of the brides through the space. Clients are drawn into and through the space by the curved pathways and display areas. The central circular bridal dressing area is the hub of this very special experience. Suspended white ceiling “clouds” create a more fanciful environment and the higher black suspended ceilings with white globe pendant lights emulate stars in a night sky.

WASHINGTON GAS LIGHT CREDIT UNION The interior of the Washington Gas Light Federal Credit Union was revitalized with a complete interior fit-out. The new branded design features an innovative, elegant, and functional solution while incorporating environmentally sustainable finishes and features throughout. Orange and blue LED lights, reminiscent of the natural gas flame, were added to the space to create a cohesive image.

The innovative updates blend seamlessly with the bank’s new image, while incorporating the trust, comfort, and tradition that the bank wanted to maintain. The natural warm woods and materials contrast with the white formed Corian fixtures creating a robust, edgy look. Open space and glass office fronts allow natural light to flow throughout the space.
