1. What are the key elements of Spatial Design?
Elegant proportions – It creates a visually pleasing and comfortable environment.
Evoke emotions – Whether it’s a sense of calmness in a bedroom, excitement in a vibrant living room, or focus in a productive workspace, the design should elicit the desired emotional response.
Thoughtfulness – To optimise the layout for functionality, flow, and efficiency
A reflection of the brand or the homeowners – In commercial spaces, the design should reflect the brand’s identity, values, and culture. For residential spaces, it should be a reflection of the homeowners’ personalities and lifestyle.
2. What is your favourite Spatial Design trend right now?
Design trends emerge, fade or transform rapidly, thus we are not a fan of that. We stay true to our design philosophy of a narrative-driven approach.
3. What was the most difficult moment when developing your idea?
The most difficult moment was when we had to think of ideas that are not commonplace.
4. What are some new things that you learned about yourself and the users as you were designing?
In this industry, we are always learning. Pertaining to this project, we learned about breaking boundaries and thus perceiving a hair salon in a different light.
We learnt that users are sensitive to smell, it adds up to the whole experience of patronising a hair salon.
5. What are your future plans?
We will keep breaking boundaries and do good work. Hopefully we can advance and explore more opportunities to dabble in potential projects with clients who share similar perspectives.
6. What was the inspiration behind your product/design/idea?
The spatial design is inspired by the essence of ‘Coulisse’ which means ‘Backstage’. Thus the façade is designed in a way that the combed plastered walls flows like curtains and reveal a part of the backstage where the magic of beauty transformation happens.
7. What is your design superpower?
For Zoe, it is curiosity. The exploration of ‘what ifs’ to stretch the possibilities of a space and experience.
For Jayelle, it is the ability to see beyond. Seeing beyond the floor plan, seeing beyond the brief and seeing beyond the delivery.
8. What is the best part about your job?
For Zoe, the best part is that there is no cookie cutter involved. Every client, space and brief is different. Every project provides a unique learning experience that fuels one’s design journey.
For Jayelle, the highlight is experiencing the job uniquely each day. One day might involve exploring layouts, the next solving problems on site, and the following week, pitching a project. It is truly a creative journey that is not mundane.
