Hair Salon in Nakazaki is a minimal space located in Osaka, Japan, designed by Shimpei Oda Architect Office. Recently, many traditional houses in this neighborhood were renovated into various kinds of shops, such as cafes, restaurants, secondhand stores, and design offices. In general customers getting a haircut prefer privacy from the public. However considering the semi-private location of the salon, a glass store front was chosen. The interior floor is finished in the same texture as the material on the driveway – creating a continuous concrete surface that connects and blends the interior with the exterior.
