Project: The Klinik Hair Salon Designed by Block Architecture Location: London, England Structural Engineer: Price & Myers Services Engineer: Furness Green Project Area: 67 sqm Project Year: 2009 Website: www.blockarchitecture.com The Klinik is a hair salon in Clerkenwell, East London, and is one of Block’s earliest works. Influence was drawn from medical environments to create a pure utilitarian space based around self-consciousness and vanity. CCTV cameras were positioned above each chair with monitors below each mirror. The waiting bench is a hybrid of the psychiatrist’s chaise-longue and a generic hospital bed, describing the process as either a monthly discussion with your ‘therapist’ or as a sterile and detached cosmetic operation.
