Beauty Salon Design and Refurbishment

Reju-u.

Reju-u contacted us to design their new salon room for their new business venture - FACIAL TREATMENTS!

The Brief was to be calming, warm, minimalistic and homely.

Grey, white and wood was used throughout the room so that colour could be added. Bespoke cabinets were handmade and sprayed to Farrow and Ball Dimpse, with a white Corian worktop covering one side of the room.

Creating a ‘homely’ look so that the clients could relax completely was our focus. ‘ Relaxation is a key element of a facial treatment’ Reju-u. The facials rejuvenate and create healthy glowing skin - we wanted the room to reflect this.

An ornate mirror attached to the wall makes the room feel twice as big and bounces light from the nearly full height window, giving the therapist the maximum amount of natural light possible.

A cosy corner with an armchair, throw and frames on the wall for added comfort for the client and/or another guest.

Being asked to design a room in the beauty industry was an exciting concept that we had never done before, the finishing touches were so much different to that of an office, restuarant or classroom which we are used to. However we loved the challenge!

r4 and Reju-u are extremely happy with the results and the clients love it!

A Restaurant Extension in Cambridge

Design and fit out project.

Cambridge is our second home. Our head office is based in Dorset however Cambridge is where it all began.

We have completed many projects within the building, from the main reception to tenant offices.

To be given the opportunity to design and fit-out their new exciting project of a restaurant extension gave us the buzz. We incorporated their original restaurant design (done by r4) into the new design to create a flow between the two.

There were a lot of groundworks to be completed and steels erected to create the shell. Below are some of the works during this time at the start of a very cold 2018.

Keep an eye out for the completed project pictures!

New Venture : Garden Design

We have now moved our creative minds to the outside living area as we are having this beautiful summer - well we were!

The brief: A seating area that has the ability to expand with family and friends but also one that is minimalistic.

We have done just that! A seating area that has the ability to lie down and sunbathe as well as sit and eat alfresco in the warm summer evenings. Benching along one side of the garden to accomodate the expanding family and friends with the room for plants behind them.

On the other side we have created a water feature and a little pond for the grandchildren to each have their own pet goldfish!

Planting and borders will be easy maintenance (due to a hectic lifestyle) and evergreen with of course a few pops of colour to really compliment the background behind them. 

Below are some pictures we have taken whilst the work is on-going

Pictures of the beautifully rennovated garden will be posted once complete, I had a nose on site recently and I must say I'm very jealous, it's idyllic, it's peaceful, it's PERFECT!

If you are attracting families, is there a portable cot available and does it fit in the master bedroom? 
Have you considered sofa beds and folding tables? 
Are you using lighter colours in small spaces? 

CLUTTER

Have you cleared away personal possessions and family photos?
Is your property open plan? Do you have room dividers as options for guests to use?
A well-stocked kitchen with utensils and crockery is essential but do you have enough cupboard space?
Have you considered a sideboard to store crockery or an island for cooking preparation?

DESIGN

Could you incorporate the local area into the design through materials and texture?
Would your interiors attract a wide audience from families to couples and groups of friends?
If you are letting the property out in cooler months, is there a cosy fire?
Do you have wipeable surfaces and hardwearing furniture? 
Do you have a guest book for feedback? 
What is your unique selling point? Do you have incredible views? Have you positioned furniture to take in the views?
Consider the experience of your guests from the moment they arrive, will they feel comfortable, happy and welcome?
