From the architect. PRIM4 locates at the central of Taipei City, where is full of business activities. Four talented and experienced hair designers cooperate to start their own and first undertaking. How to enliven this old community? It’s YOMA’s first question. PRIM4 provide their customers a salon which is childlike but experienced. Based on hair designers’ specialty, YOMA play the space with various lighting, reversed lawn ceiling, and non-square mirrors to break the rules. The city is indifferent, but the salon is lively. We integrate childhood into adulthood. We make it interesting rather than boring. PRIM 4 is only 98.0 sqm, but it distinct to five characteristic workspaces. Especially, there are two VIP rooms were isolated masterly by line curtain and drapes, giving privacy but penetrable. This is what YOMA expects PRIM4, functional, interesting, and professional. PRIM4 is a “WOW” hair salon.

Background:

Four young and talented hair designers want to start an undertaking and chase their dream. They want a special hair salon that warms people with energy and children’s fun.

Idea:

The main idea of spacing is locating a bar at the central, then connecting with other divisions. We manipulate different shapes of mirrors and various kinds of lighting to create changeable atmosphere of each room. The huge mountain-shaped mirrors and walls in hair cutting area overlap their reflections by lighting. The moveable egg-shaped mirrors and the lawn on the ceiling in hair coloring area interest the space by reversing routine. The curve compartment with lighting band isolate VIP Room 1 from public to noble. The hair salon is only 98.0 sqm, but we create five featured spaces with lighting to make it merge into one specific studio.

Inspiration

Using children’s fun to decorate the space and make it humorous. PRIM4 locates in An-Dong Street, Taipei City. After you enter PRIM4, you feel like the city is not immutable, living is not callous, and people can work on their specialty. YOMA always create interesting design in order to enrich people’s lives. We make space surprising with humor. We want to relax people with vivid cutting when they visit PRIM4.
