Nagoya-based architecture firm Studio Velocity completed a house, much rather a beauty salon, with curved walls that expand in volume as the structure retreats.

Completed earlier this year, the beauty salon is the result of an extensive study on curvature, and how it can apply to the creative use of indoor and outdoor space. Specifically, the need for an outdoor garden, cloth-drying and parking space, were part of the requirements.

Kentaro Kurihara and  Miho Iwatsuki, the duo behind Studio Velocity, write that the initial idea came from a desire to create a structure that doesn’t blend in with its intimate retail and residential surroundings. They wanted a lasting impression to be imprinted on people who would walk or drive by on the relatively high-traffic street.
