Appreciations towards ARCHETYPE (contact: for providing the following description:


“Any space should not just be used for targeted groups of people, It should be artistic, as part of the art of living.”

开端 | Beginning


As talented street barbers have become an urban legend while people are used to have their haircut done in those stereotype chain of barbers, a styling salon that can offer a sense of edgy is what urban youth are run after.

「 意念造型 SENSE SALON 」 作为一家在成都近20年的造型机构,伴随着国内时尚行业的发展。也因为这样的伴随,才能多一份理解。

As a local styling agency in Chengdu for nearly 20 years, SENSE SALON has followed the development of fashion industry in China and got to be more involved because of this companion.

蜕变 | Changing


In modern life, a change of hairstyle can be as a part of everyone’s essential. It is the way of every individual with various character treats his own life on. Whether to people or to space decoration, changing is the eternal theme of becoming better.

▼于空间之中,再筑空间,In space, create spaces.


Differing from the traditional way of dividing space by solid walls, the way of using matrix brick with a progressive arrangement of layers seems to be more applicable. It’s like a journey of transformation. The next chapter, the alternation of real and virtual, continues the discussion of changing of materials.

方圆 | Geometry


Squares and circles are the geometric clues that implicitly define this space, maintaining the order in exploration. Meanwhile, this space has been deconstructed in this particular order, keeping its balance while those squares and circles are freely flowing in space.

光影 | Light and shadow


To achieve believable indoor lighting the entire material and shading system is updated for enhanced realism,in order to polish distinct light and shadow of each moment and eventually give it back to time. However, those freedom gained from time, we truly believe, is the respect of design for perception.

延续 | Continuing


In terms of functional requirements, the superimposed space could be treated as both separate and continuous. People’s awareness of things could be both fuzzy and clear, according to multiple perspective views. Yet,the real continuation gradually occurs when the excessive deliberation reduces.
