In the heart of New York’s meat-packing district, the cutting-edge hair product company and salon, Bumble and bumble wanted to make a new home for their company that addressed all facets of their business. With a tri-fold program spread out over seven floors, the project presented a unique challenge to accommodate disparate programmatic elements (salon, corporate headquarters, and training facility), while creating a unified environment for the company.
Throughout the space, elements reappear to unite the floors. The existing concrete slab was maintained throughout, sealed to uphold the finish against traffic and stains from hair dyes. Services for each floor are located behind floor-to-ceiling cement board walls, which bracket the space; the material was chosen for both its aesthetic appeal as well as its ability to age well in a variety of applications.
