Toronto design firm +tongtong’s latest project, Her Majesty’s Pleasure, is equal parts café, retail boutique, beauty salon and bar, all located under one roof in downtown Toronto.

商店中的咖啡厅,精品零售店,美容美发区还有酒吧这四个功能块之间的界限被设计师刻意模糊,并通过相互呼应的材料与图案让客人感受到整个空间的凝聚力与和谐性。

总体而言,商店最终呈现的风格光鲜明丽。白色,浅灰色,木炭色还有各种蓝色为清新的基调,然后用明亮的黄色、温暖的木材色、闪亮的铜家具作为空间中的活力点缀色。

设计师tongtong说道:“我们希望在精致和优雅的设计环境中体现更自然,更舒适,更环保的意识。”此外这个温馨舒适的空间也与邻里时尚前卫的氛围相协调。

From the beginning, the +tongtong team, under the creative direction of John Tong, engaged in a meaningful dialogue with their clients Sara Kardan and Jeff Armstrong that continually challenged the conventions of the beauty salon experience. This collaborative relationship evolved the business model and was fundamental in developing the dynamic offerings of Her Majesty’s Pleasure.

“This process could only have happened with a client who was not set in their ways, who was open to ideas and enjoyed volleying back,” Tong says. “The volleying back and forth not only evolved the project, it was fun.”

Situated at the base of a newly occupied condominium building on King Street West, the epicenter of where urbanites live, work and play, Her Majesty’s Pleasure is a place for women and men to get manicures, pedicures, and blowouts while socializing and sipping on their elixir of choice – freshly-squeezed juice, lattes or craft cocktails.

人们进入商店首先看见的是咖啡区和酒吧区,吧台的桌面是纯净的白色大理石,凳子则是几何感强烈的铜椅子。设计师tongtong认为铜是一个非常温暖材料,是珍贵的现代气质金属。酒吧和咖啡区的背景墙都安装了玻璃。而当人们向内张望,木材搭建的坡屋顶精品购物店则跃入人们眼帘。

Architecturally, the space seamlessly reflects this multi-purpose program, blurring the lines between each zone. By reiterating materials, patterns and concepts across each area, Her Majesty’s Pleasure feels cohesive and connected throughout the space.

Overall, the firm kept the palette light and fresh, selecting white, light grey, charcoal, and varying shades of blue for the main colour scheme.

Hits of copper, bright yellow, Douglas fir plywood and slate added warmth and highlighted the palette. A bold custom-design graphic floor pattern of blues and grey tile energize the entry café/bar.

“We aimed to bridge a sense of casual elegance and refinement with that of a more natural, tactile and edgy environment”, says Tong.

The scheme creates spaces that are both comfortable and inviting, while also addressing the design and fashion-forward culture of the neighbourhood.

Her Majesty’s Pleasure opens with the café/bar area. The one side of the room consists of a seemingly ornate, yet stripped down, whitewashed bar topped with white marble. A line of geometrically folded copper stools reflect the coved lights under the bar, while across the room, bistro tables and custom-designed grey leather banquet seating with a geometric black steel base and Douglas fir foot rest line the wall. Riffing on the character of the bar, the sideboard features a white tile design with flecks of copper that resemble falling leaves.

“Copper is a really warm tactile material and is the perfect foil to the whitewashed accents. It gives a bit of sparkle. It’s a precious metal that’s still industrial and elemental,” says Tong.

+tongtong accentuated the towering 20-foot-high ceilings by installing industrial, multi-pane glass and steel window frames behind the bar, a treatment that plays with the space’s proportions and also allows patrons to view into the salon area from the bar. The bar and the salon are mirror images of the other, with identical white enameled steel pendant lights hanging in parallel, like voluptuous earrings complimenting a simple dress.

经过咖啡厅,酒吧区还有精品小店后便到了美容美发区,这个区域的上方天花安装了类似谷仓建筑般的坡屋顶,通过现代式的灯光设计,传统的木架子被极具前卫的打亮。另外一侧相对独立的修脚区域的屋顶也做了类似处理。其中白色墙面上的绿色植物与白色桌椅上的蓝色椅垫调和了天花的橙色与地板的深色。

Immediately upon entering Her Majesty’s Pleasure, the eye is drawn to the architectural structure at the back of the space. Serving doubleduty as a pop-up retail boutique and reception to the salon, the monolith is “a product display system grown out of an architectural construction,” says Tong. “It’s a structure within a structure.” The pitched roof language is another nod to tradition, resembling barns and tree houses alike, but the geometric wooden shelving, backlit by LEDs, is fully modern.

Tong continues: “the lively juxtaposition of the natural wood and the whitewash was a way to really bring a modern architectural, slightly edgier language to something more traditional and refined yet playful.”

Traveling past the wooden pop up, you arrive in the beauty salon. The marble bar from the entry wraps around, extending the experience into the salon and setting the stage for manicures. A long, raised wooden deck lined with Muskoka chairs defines the pedicure area. Above the deck, the coved ceiling is painted a fresh yellow and softly lit with a rafter-like structure assembled over top. Like the retail boutique, the pedicure area, which was designed with an outdoor porch in mind, feels separate of the main area.

沙龙的化妆休息室也延续了设计基调。白色的桌面上镶嵌着铜色的菱形瓷砖,与同样色彩的灯具与椅子形成呼应。客人能在这里休息并商议
未来的行程。

The blowout lounge also eschews the typical salon set-up. Patrons sit at the marble bar as they get their hair done, with bartenders serving on the other side. Located across the aisle, the makeup lounge – which can be used to collect oneself after a treatment or booked for private functions – is articulated from the rest of the space as a wood cabin. At the center of the lounge, geometric copper stools surround a custom-designed table, which is topped with copper and white diamond-shaped tiles.

Her Majesty’s Pleasure truly is a hybrid concept. A place where people can come for their morning coffee and croissant, a quick lunch, an  after-work cocktail, to get ready for a night out, or to pamper themselves alone or with friends. Architecturally, the space reflects this ethos as well. As Tong says, it truly is a concept of “many spaces, within a space.”

女皇美容沙龙店实现了设计师期望的一个空间内拥有多个空间,成为了城市中混合功能社交场所。人们能够在这里享受咖啡和早餐,简单的午餐,下班的鸡尾酒以及和朋友尽情美容休息。
