WESTORY美发沙龙由建筑事务所YOSHIHIRO KATO ATELIER设计，距离日本名古屋的市中心仅有30分钟的车程。该美发沙龙是一个单层的建筑体量，其项目基地原是一片旷野。设计团队将绿色元素融入进建筑的室内外空间中，以期打造出一个更具自然氛围的发廊。
Yoshihiro kato atelier has designed the ‘WESTORY’ hair salon located 30 minutes by car from the center of nagoya city in japan. What was originally a field, the site is now home to the single story intervention. Incorporating elements of greenery within and around the new building, the guiding concept behind the project was to create a hair salon with a more natural feeling.

Measuring 134.99 m2 in area, the building is set back from the street. The parking lot is formed in crushed stone, providing a rough and more natural feel. Concrete slabs, positioned in the center of the site, denote the path to the hair salon, welcoming customers inside. The volume announces itself by a continuous roof plain that folds over and extends down to create the main entrance façade. By doing this, the architect forms a somewhat introverted appearance, as the interior is partially hidden by the diagonal lines of the roof extension.

Inside the hair salon the timber structure is exposed throughout the space, creating a warm and natural atmosphere. The roof plain that extends down to the ground reduces the amount of direct light that enters the interior, which was a deliberate design decision by the architect. Instead, to receive diffused light, a void is cut into the roof to form a small internal courtyard. This insertion brings an element of the outdoors indoors while also bringing natural light into the salon.
