Si estas paredes hablasen, a project by Serrano + Baquero

Si estas paredes hablasen, it shows the visitor all the possible visions that take place within a space. When Serrano + Baquero receive the commission for the reform of a local and its adaptation to the use of aesthetic center, they conceive as a driving idea the creation of a different experience for the user in this type of places.

Through a tour inside the hairdressing space and with the insertion of a continuous mirrored piece with flat, concave and convex surfaces, it takes the user through different sensations depending on the position and the image reflected at each moment, both of himself as of the environment.

Si estas paredes hablasen, it is based on experience, on the reflection during the tour, to be aware of the moments that pass by when going to the hairdressing salon

Due to the shortage of means, the architecture of the existing premises appears in rough, with a white patina that covers everything, walls and facilities. The continuity of the microcement floor is interrupted by carpeted areas that mark the routes and delimit waiting spaces and work areas.

The mirrored piece that runs through and divides the space houses the toilets, warehouses and reception, as well as lighting. Delimits and widens the perception of space.
