JUDGES’ COMMENTS:
“The modern industrial feel fits with the neighborhood and the salon’s culture. I love the exclusive barbershop! It’s like a modern, metrosexual mancave!”—Ortmann
“A working space that keeps the aesthetic of the neighborhood. Good lighting, flow and transition.”—Labos
“To successfully include a salon’s branding into its design is no easy challenge, and I believe it has been accomplished here rather well.”—Soukhopalova

“Art becomes fully integrated in these made-for-Wicker Park station designs portraying an artist easel concept.  Freestanding, the easels are fashion statements that hint to our clientele that they’re an integral part of the creative process during every experience.”
