This is a project to renovate a former retro hair salon on the second floor of a building on a narrow alley that seems to have been left behind by urban development, a short walk across the street on Hondori Avenue in Naka Ward, Hiroshima City. The name of the store was coined from the first and last name of the owner, instead of the seasonal winter word FUYU. When I visited the site for the first time and heard the name and meaning of the store from the owner, I was surprised by his view of the world and thought that FUYU could be a way to break away from the mundane and conventional. I felt there was a possibility that I could create a space with a different approach.

I wondered if it would be possible to make a small space of less than 10 tsubo feel as spacious as possible to visitors, and by gradually making the functions necessary for a hair salon float away from the walls of the building, I was able to make it seem like a piece of furniture with a function as an art piece concept, rather than an architectural element with a function attached to the space. In the center of the space, there is a silkscreen art piece called Hair, which is based on Kohei Nawa's hair.

By considering the art and the furniture in parallel and arranging them in the space.By taking the art and the furniture in parallel and arranging them in the space, I was able to create a space where the furniture looks like an art piece that has broken away from its function by separating itself from the structure. Art that seems to accompany the function of the hair salon space, created by directly sowing hair.

By arranging these two elements in the space, which have broken away from each other's stereotypes in opposite vectors. By arranging these two elements in the space, we hope to sublimate the space into a hair salon like a gallery, and let people feel the infinite sensory expanse of the tiny space, which is sharpened like the world of Zen.
