The Beckett Hair Academy

Creativity, passion and individuality – this design thesis adapts the existing building of 33-34 Sir John Rogerson’s Quay into a multi-functional state of the art, Hair Salon and Training School. The salon and academy boasts great views of the River Liffey and is located in the bustling area of the quays. The design concept was inspired by the movement of hair and the geometric shapes found within hair design. A combination of geometric triangular forms alongside softer organic curves makes for an exciting and energetic salon environment. The accompanying visual shows the styling pod insert, which sits beneath the main voided atrium space.
