The major issue of this project was the low ceiling height due to the existing duct location. In order to solve this problem,  HAAK architects exposed the ceiling structure by partially opening the drywall ceiling while hiding the existing duct. 

This rectangular space has been executed by elaborately incising the planes and creating the architectural opening /gap in the wall. The dark zone for pedicure service creates a nice contrast with the overall white planes, providing a relaxed ambience for the pedicure customers.
