French salon salon update

Posted on Wed, 23 Jul 2008 by midcenturyjo

Our favourite Australian architect Scott Weston has been giving us an inside view of his latest project, a fabulous fantasy Marie Antoinette beauty salon. Here’s his latest update.

“The thing that I really enjoy is the nose to the grindstone & watching a project evolve and become just like our models we originally present to the clients. We like nothing better than to nut out all the details & mock things up prior to manufacture & installation. For the hair salon we are doing in Sydney we are having the perimeter wall panels digitally printed on 3mm solid grade laminate panels to withstand chemicals & sprays in the cutting room. I’ve attach various scale mock-ups of the cutting station walls with the final being at scale 1:1 so we can check the graphic quality & linework- it is spectacular & we have designed it to emulate a French Apartment Lithograph. Other areas & furniture items will be built & then finished or laid up in the digital printed laminate to continue the look & feel throughout the salon. I’ve also included some very beautiful bespoke pieces of furniture and the corresponding study models currently being built for a Client. The table seats 16 people & is turned timber & will have a resin table top in matching colour in tomato red gloss. The tansu cabinet is finished in Walnut veneer & gloss laminates internally. Once again the as built joinery pieces look just like the models. Happy Client & yes happy Architect!”
