When looking for a new space for her 34-year-old salon, Fati Sariaslani decided to take on the project of renovating a former warehouse.

“The building was an eyesore for the downtown community,” she says. “It was entirely gutted and we repurposed as much of the original building material as possible. The modern industrial design pays homage to the building’s roots by incorporating lots of natural light and warm wood elements mixed with stronger metal pieces.”

The gray-marbled, high-shine concrete flooring that are balanced with the masculine touch of black took boxes give Salon Ludic an eclectic feel. A high-top table where clients can relax and recharge their phones serves as a centerpiece in the salon, which has earned a Salons of Distinction honor in the 2019 Salons of the Year.
