Relocated from a former, cramped space, this salon expanded and moved into the same building as MLA, overlooking the Hudson River. MLA balanced the industrial character of the existing space with the strong Beauty Parlor brand, providing the required full height mirrors and stylist workstations without making them too visually heavy. Custom designed steel frameworks support the edge-to-edge mirrors and provide all required storage at each station.  Steel-and-glass windows celebrate the sweeping Hudson River views, however, meeting the climate-control needs of a busy salon in a space with large western-facing windows proved challenging, particularly without cluttering the ceiling with equipment.  Careful coordination with the mechanical engineer and interior designer produced the cleanest, most efficient bustling salon.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY:  "We had a great experience working with Michael Lewis and his team on the first phase of our renovation project and will work with them again on the second half, too. Michael created a beautiful design for our bedroom-addition that corrected a decades-old renovation and produced an end result that fits seamlessly into the original Dutch Colonial style. We really appreciated the time that he and the team took to understand our goals and work with us in shaping the design. And their assistance in selecting a contractor and managing the renovation process has been invaluable. We highly recommend the firm."
