Russian architect Eduard Eremchuk has recently completed Sfera, a modular co-working space for make-up artists, hairdressers, and manicure specialists with hourly rental rates in Moscow. The client commissioned Yeremchuk to design an adaptive space suitable for a wide variety of activities.
“The room should have been calm and cozy – so that any professional, regardless of age and habits, could find a comfortable place to work,” says the architect. “In addition to using the hall as a co-working space, the hosts are going to conduct lectures, masterclasses and presentations here, so the space should be easily transformed.”
As a result, the studio has furnished the 140 square meter space with modules on casters, and the role of partitions was given to textile curtains, which allow users to compartmentalize the room in the right way or quickly return it to its original architecture.
The curtains were designed by Katya Pyatitskaya, founder of Laroque Studios, which drew inspiration from heat maps. Its abstract shapes and iridescent colors have become the main visual accent in the interior, where gray color prevails.
The architect sought to preserve and emphasize the characteristics of the existing space – the abundance of light comes from large windows and high ceilings.
Thanks to compact tables, convenient mirror racks, and mobile cabinets, the architect managed to create seven workstations for hairdressers, four for manicure masters, a reception area and a small lecture space.
