A dramatically-lit, eye-catching retail space for Dermalogica, an award-winning skincare line, leads to a series of closed, private therapy rooms in back.

The retail space is a tall faceted enclosure of triangular panels surfaced in troweled concrete, visible to passers-by through storefront windows. The panels are illuminated indirectly by LED tape lights in the gaps between them. Floors are polished concrete. Along the side walls, products line the floating acrylic shelving units; the shelves themselves are edge-lit  by hidden LEDs.

Overhead, a custom triangular LED light fixture frames the edge of the paneled surface where it stops to expose the ceiling. The reception desk was custom designed and fabricated out of white Caesarstone in a faceted pattern to complement the walls.

The paneled surface splits to create an entrance to a cove-lit corridor with treatment rooms on either side.  Direct lighting in the rooms comes from large round lenses set in the lowered ceiling, while indirect lighting emerges from perimeter coves, which also conceal air supply vents. The walls — where not concealed by full-height counter and storage units — are covered in wallpaper with a linear textured pattern.

The bathroom at the end of the hall is surface completely in black penny tile with a back-lit mirror providing illumination. One treatment room features a shower lined in white and gray penny tiles. Access to a mezzanine through an office provides additional storage and space for technicians.
