Gigi Salon and Spa

Portland, Oregon

Overlooking the historic Portland Park Blocks, the new Aveda Salon was designed to be a peaceful and relaxing haven within the heart of the downtown business district. The reception, retail space, and stylist’s stations were oriented to overlook the park, while the massage and therapy rooms were placed in a quieter private location. The use of natural, earthy materials such as stained concrete floors, rich woodwork, bamboo, river rocks, and willow twigs, combine with the calming hues of the ice blue glass mosaic tiles, glass shelving, and stainless steel accents to create a fresh and contemporary, yet organic atmosphere.
