I have been working for Mike Hamel, owner of Ginger Meggs Salon Merivale, for a number of years. Mike is a world-class hairdresser, with many international awards.
He now operates from his new Ginger Meggs salon in Ballantynes Contemporary Lounge.
His brief to me was for a salon that was “smooth, slick, clean and retro”. Functionally it had to be easy to work in, low on clutter and be able to display a lot of Mike’s hair product range.
The images show the resulting design with a limited (black & white) palette, smooth lines, and rounded rectangular forms with product displayed everywhere.
Since this project was done Mike has asked me to extend the salon providing space for more workstations and an updated, “more glamorous” look. I have included a couple of concept images to show this new direction, currently under development!
It has been a great experience working with such a talented client who never stands still or rests on his achievements.
CONTRACT SCOPE: Salon design concept & documentation, establish budgets, apply for building consent and supervise the construction of the fitout.
