Salon Mario Russo brings the same exceptional service from their previous location into a new, luxurious and modern salon on Park Plaza in Boston, MA. This 1,700 square foot, ground floor space provides a new level of accessibility for their staff and clientele as well as an opportunity for a street-level brand presence. Studio Troika worked directly with the owner, as well as a few senior stylists and salon personnel, to understand the specific spatial requirements and extensive storage needs in an effort to curate a seamless, service-focused client experience.
The design is predicated on a desire to transform the box-like retail shell into a soft and warm space which is largely achieved through gently-curved walls and ceiling planes. These sweeping gestures of the main spaces within the salon also guide users through the space in a natural and comfortable sequence from the welcome lounge, into the hair washing area, and through the open salon to their stylist’s chair.
