OSLO Ranelagh


This is the second OSLO premises we have worked on. It was opened in Ranelagh earlier this year after the success of their flagship Mespil road beauty salon.

The brief for architect Lenzie O'Sullivan and contractors CRM fitouts (http://crmfitouts.ie) was to transform a dated and undistinguished shell into a stylish unisex salon. The key to this successful approach was through the Architect’s clear detailing of the chosen materials palette to ensure that they expressed the requested ambience.

Technical aspects of successful treatment/retail spaces; addressing sound, comfort, odours, texture and lighting were addressed in a subtle manner by the use of matt oak-framed partitions, to compliment our polished carrara furniture and signage, specially commissioned fabric wall tapestries, extensive concealed lighting, mosaic-artist signage, invisible services and external oak signage. The striking bespoke freestanding oak and carrara furniture was designed to both technically and ergonomically enhance the treatments offered.
