AIA Chicago 2013 Design Night Winner for Interior Architecture category.
Located on the mezzanine level of the Trump Tower, Anthony Cristiano Salon evokes a one of a kind salon experience. Floor-to-ceiling windows frame remarkable views of the Chicago River while the crisp monochromatic interior embodies the nature of what it means to be a salon.
DMAC Architecture worked with the Cristiano team to develop the 3,400 square foot salon into an ideal space for the client and stylist. Frameless mirrors are strategically placed creating the illusion of an endless environment, while views out to the Chicago River pull the experience back into reality. The 24 stations are divided up evenly between cutting and coloring. The monochromatic palette was intentionally pushed to designate the functional difference between a cut, white leather chair, and a coloring, black leather chair.
The comforts of home are combined with cleanliness and views that only the Trump Tower Chicago can offer. A heavy consideration to detail yet minimalistic approach to design allowed DMAC and the Anthony Cristiano Salon to put hair styling as the priority of this space.
