A very simple but effective hair salon exterior design solution by Austrian firm X Architecten.

“The entire façade now acts as an effective store sign through a three-dimensional architectural (hair) wave which runs along the exterior. At the same time, this dynamic design fulfils another important function: vertically, it runs like a curtain over the glazed façade, offers a degree of privacy, and thus supports the atmosphere and the character of the salon.” – x Architekten
