Male Grooming Academy and Spa

The aim of this project is to take an existing building and change its original purpose into a Male Grooming Academy and Spa that would facilitate a male clientele with the growing popularisation of male grooming. The concept I developed was taken from the shapes formed by charcoal used to create heat in saunas. This created different rectangular and square shapes which I linked into the design of each area of my building. My chosen topic would be viewed by the public as more than a Male Grooming Academy, but also as a meeting place and social venue with its retail, restaurant and cocktail bar facilities.
