Situated in prime retail space on the front row overlooking Waterloo Train Station,
Reeds of London is a traditional family run hairdressing business with roots stretching back over 150 years.
Russell the salon owner approached us with concerns that the salon was not reaching out to the emerging younger demographic of the Waterloo Business District.
The core concepts driving the design were, economy of space, a high energy vibrant environment, and minimalistic integrated storage solutions while still staying true to
the salons informal, friendly founding principles. Space was created to include another hairdressing point and a reception to facilitate bookings.
Working within a limited budget, a full refurbishment was implemented, ceilings removed, old building features restored and bespoke furniture designed and installed. Solutions were found to add functionality and division of the space
while still retaining the open plan layout.

Remarcable were flexible and approachable,
they offered sound advice and steered us to a
proposal that was in line with market trends and the
potential clientele of the Waterloo district.
We were recommended Remarcable design by a friend who used them for an office refurbishment earlier on in the year. Marc and Reni came to visit us at our premises and listened to our ideas and in what direction that we wanted to move our company, we felt confident that they would produce a design layout that would appeal to the younger demographic, which was our primary objective.
We met several times over the following weeks to alter and develop the design, throughout the process Remarcable were flexible and approachable, they offered sound advice and steered us to a proposal that was in line with market trends and the potential clientele of the waterloo district.The final design was far better that what we had hoped to achieve, both visually and in terms of practical usable workspace. We were delighted with the outcome and revenue has since increased.
