Portuguese studio Nuno Capa have completed the interiors for a hair salon in Braga, Portugal, featuring translucent curtains to partition the space into smaller zones.
Designed for hairdresser Pedro Remy, exposed concrete features throughout the New Room salon and the areas requiring a bit more privacy are divided using corrugated metal.
Double height curtains running on circular tracks enclose workstations to create semi-private booths.
The salon also functions as a training academy.

Here's some more information from the graphic designer João Loureiro:
New Room is the latest space of the Portuguese hairdresser Pedro Remy. Hosted in the city of Braga, this innovative space designed by the architect Nuno Capa, it’s contemporary and minimalist.
Aiming to keep sight of the initial construction raw elements such as structural elements in concrete, these dialogues with the intervention of new fixed elements, ensuring the visual balance of a relaxing, comfortable and informal environment. It promotes the spatial fluidity for those who circulate, giving a special and different character to the workroom.
Alongside innovation, New Room offers an extensive menu of hairdressing and aesthetical services, targeted to customers who worry about their image and looking for new trends.
Our stylists are internally trained by our own academy to ensure a high quality service, always directing their attention to the customer’s life concept, personality, personal habits, appearance and hair type. This workspace is also a training academy, aiming to support all hairdressing and make-up professionals.
In the schedule is already a plan for continuous and quality training in the area of new methods and practical techniques. The business training in management of hairdressers, leadership and motivation of teams, marketing, among others, will enhance the diversity of educational knowledge offer, differentiation factors and enhance today’s professionals.
We advocate an equal degree of knowledge for all professionals, in order to glamorize this as one of the most important artistic interventions in the area of beauty that comes with the past, present and future of human civilization.
New Room is a new change, modernity and sharing knowledge for everyone's future. We want to maximize the value of the concept and lifestyle for all our customers.
