spa boutique 'mars the salon' by curiosity

two long treatment rooms run along the side corridor
 


japan-based curiosity has just completed a spa boutique called ‘mars the salon’ in aoyama, japan,
located next to the nezu museum garden. the salon’s interior is based on a rhythm of vertical light
and shadow strokes which create a linear visual pattern throughout the space.
these vertical forms are inspired by ‘torii’, which are gates leading into a shrine which marks the
division between the physical and mental worlds.
