KeRa Designed Brooklyn Barbershop with Dual Functions, Includes a Coffee Shop

Syifa Aisha Arashi | Friday, 1 July 2022

In Medan, there is a barbershop that collaborates with a barber room with a coffee shop. With a limited area of 70 square meters, KeRa Design had to rack its brains to design a room with dual function. In addition, the user with a different activity is also a problem for KeRa Design. Shaving your hair and brewing a glass of coffee are two very different things in terms of usability and spatial arrangement. Located in a densely populated residential area in Medan, a shop was transformed into a barbershop known as the Brooklyn Barbershop.

The owner wants a barbershop that not only looks beautiful but should be comfortable. A barbershop that includes a coffee shop is a fresh idea for KeRa Design to expose every activity in the space. Finally, a concept was set to form the basis of the design of the Brooklyn Barbershop, which is designed with glass bulkheads to allow all activities to be open and have a good circulation rotation in confined spaces.

Brooklyn Barbershop is designed with a predominantly white interior with a façade that uses glass block material to bring out soft light from the interior, so it looks like a burning lantern. Maximum artificial light is applied in order to create a bright interior while being able to give an image of the barbershop and coffee shop with a sterile image. In addition, this artificial light is able to display interior elements that look to have maximum cleanliness. The exposed walls depict the freedom of every space user activity in the Brooklyn Barbershop.

The interior of Brooklyn Barbershop is equipped with minimalist furniture that is accommodated the needs of the space and its users. This is evidenced by the long table which is specially designed as a continuity between the barbershop and the coffee shop, but this table is insulated by the transparent tempered glass to separate the two functions of the space.

In addition, a special barbershop chair is also chosen in white and gray colors to harmonize the minimalist concept in the room. Interestingly, there is flexible furniture that is neatly stored in the storage, if it is issued, this furniture can include the needs of sitting with a table that is in accordance with ergonomics. This hidden furniture is a brilliant idea for a limited space so that the room does not feel cramped.
