The client is a hair stylist in his mid 30s. After having brushed up his skill in famed hair-salons in Tokyo and Nagoya, he set up as a professional hair stylist. He chose to own a hair salon gallery as a next step to spend creative time with his colleagues for the next 20 years.
He purchased a plot relatively near from his work place, and this project started with his image of “a residence for hair-salon space” . With the inception of a vacant plot of land, FRUFFY consists mainly of a court house with a pilotis garage which is a comparatively quixotic feature for the metropolitan area.
Not only as a hair salon gallery, has FRUFFY had an art gallery on the 1st floor for a transmission point. In the second floor of a hair salon, lights and movable furniture perform in each situation like at nights, FRUFFY turns as a night bar. FRUFFY gives birth to a new interpretation of “residency” , “work” and “play”
