The Ocean Rooms Beauty, Ocean Village Marina, Southampton

Matthews Rea were asked to fully design and project manage this Marina-fronted Beauty Salon. The brand new 3,000 sq ft., breeze block, concrete based unit was spatially designed to incorporate five treatment rooms, office, staff room, wc, and plant room. The brief was to create a monochrome scheme with a high end, luxury feel. Inspiration was taken from Art Deco design and classic Couture fashion houses to deliver a timeless and glamorous design.

Fabrics and finishes were chosen to add texture and pattern which reflected the high end scheme. The majority of the furniture was custom designed by Matthews Rea and executed to an extremely high standard by our highly skilled joiners. ‘The entrance in includes the Oceans Rooms logo which has been laser cut into the porcelain floor, beautifully installed by our team.’

Spanning 14 weeks from conception through to completion, this project hugely benefited from the meticulous attention to detail in terms of design and project delivery. The award winning Ocean Rooms opened in November 2015 and boasts a discerning number of returning clients.
