Text description provided by the architects. The Angel Academy project had the idea of ​​creating a place that will make you feel important and unique thanks to the combination of organic shapes, neutral colors and curved walls. Located in the center of Pristina, converted from a residential house into a training academy. Angel Academy is a beauty space training salon combining different functions. The main reason was to create an academy for hairdressers, manicure technicians and eyebrow technicians. The space also offers functions such as training sessions and workshops and a marketing spot.

One of the main goals was smart zoning. The space had to be designed in such a way that customers and employees felt comfortable in the same space. From the existing situation which was quite difficult, with two sets of stairs, destroyed walls and insufficient natural light. With this we managed to create a space to use in each corner, we kept the main stairs for vertical movement while the secondary ones were closed and used for storage. Unnecessary walls have been torn down to make the space feel bigger. In this project, workspace was key. It was developed so that beauty professionals can develop training for clients, all while taking up as little physical space as possible while continuing to do their professional work.

The distribution of functions is based on the floors and the space of the building. Manicure and pedicure classes are located on the ground floor, including tables for manicure training with many designed led lights, special area for a pedicure with high comfort landing seats. The office is located on this floor due to the main entrance, the second floor with additional space and without columns and which is ideal for eyebrow training space. The third floor is the makeup practice floor, with mirrors attached to the ceiling and counter and with diffused light to aid in practice.

The color palette is based on earth tones and neutral colors that depict feminine prominence. Nude colors reflect without affecting other colors and do not affect the forming process. The perception of the colors of the floor, the ceiling and the walls appears differently but in the same shades where they merge with the intervention of light.

The exterior colors are linked to the interior to create a sense of continuity between interior and exterior. The facade is made of natural and non-toxic materials, characterized by a modern minimalist style. In particular, the panels are made of curved perforated sheets that repeat to create a continuum. With a vibrant color of nude shades, the background is created by creating an arch to connect with the metal sheets and indicate the entrance.
