VM&RD - - VM-RD RETAIL DESIGN AWARDS 2014 -

Striv­ing to cre­ate a lux­u­ri­ous, mod­ern space with a touch of op­u­lence, DCA crafted a bou­tique ex­pe­ri­ence for Looks Uni­sex Sa­lon at Con­naught Place, New Delhi. Thrilled to work at this her­itage site, the de­sign firm re­fur­bished the space by de­mol­ish­ing the ex­ist­ing mez­za­nine level to dou­ble up the height of­fered by the build­ing in the in­ner cir­cle of Con­naught Place. Cus­tomers are greeted by a long and nar­row en­trance, where the an­tique mir­rored pas­sage area is beau­ti­fully de­signed to re­tain the vis­i­tor’s in­ter­est. The pas­sage ends with the re­tail units af­ter which the styling area re­veals it­self. The be­spoke curved re­cep­tion desk sits on the left with the mir­ror on the side re­flect­ing the ac­tiv­ity all around. The styling area is floored with mys­tic pure vinyl which up­lifts the mood by con­trast­ing with the pure grey min­i­mal­is­tic walls and lin­ear light­ing. The sin­gle floor plate of 2370 sq ft, was mod­i­fied and di­vided into styling area and a rear zone which is more for­mal and per­sonal. The rear zone has a pedi spa, oil zone (skin and hair treat­ment sec­tions), con­sul­ta­tion and fa­cial rooms. The mood board of the treat­ment rooms is placid and calm us­ing the dark wooden tex­tured vinyl and coco bole ve­neered fur­ni­ture. The high skirt­ing fol­lowed by the fab­ric lay­er­ing make the space highly func­tional as well as very stylish. The sheer cur­tains add el­e­gance to the floor while clean clas­si­cal de­tail­ing of the door frames makes an im­pres­sion­able state­ment. The styling area is lit with the min­i­mal­is­tic lin­ear runs called LED Linea, while chan­de­liers adorn the for­mal ar­eas. Ac­cent light­ing which high­lights the cur­tain fab­ric was done to achieve a soft am­bi­ent light level
