Georgia Tsazi was asked to design “Line”, a contemporary multi space of a hair salon where
you can enjoy your drink and shop in Argos Argolida.
The axis of the architectural exploration was artificialization of urban world and mechanized
design, which led to design principles that called “habiter” into question and created a
modulo based on owner’s functionality and needs.
The main idea of the architectural proposal was a secondary skin- a secondary façade on
building’s each side. The architectural plan was developed according to clear separation of
uses, using grid, levels and customized special constructions. The concept of transience,
nothingness and emptiness are highlighted through floor plan’s simplicity and purity. The
secondary façade, through a curve, tears space into two and invades the second part of the
space separating uses.
Architecture invades hair salon space and subordinates form and material of special
constructions (mirrors, hangers, bathers) to the service of physical needs. Numbers animate
special constructions by creating a space inextricably linked with movement, functionality
and architecture. Materials and measure are wisely used creating different pallets:
white-black-yellow, metal-plaster-steel, joints-engrave-curve.
Line, born in 2021, promotes its standard values such as upcycling (used marble sink, steel
sheets, old interior doors found in space). All special constructions have to recount their
construction through their materials’ reuse and their original etymology used to emphasize
their physical characteristics.
Line’s strategic locations (a block corner in city center commercial zone) was studied in its
visual identity too, translating the fugitives and perspective into exterior signage. The Λά/ιν
signage is a special construction, a metal diptych which passing visitors perceive and read
gradually as they approach.
