St. Nails

St. Nails

St. Nails (Nail Spa) came to us with one word in mind.. Filipino.. they want a modern store but it has to be Filipino… being inclined to modern architecture, it was a challenge to define Filipino in a modern context, as it is a continuous.

Debate on what is a real Filipino?

Filipino, in a cultural sense is a welcoming, smile-loving, down to earth, warm character, and being modern is cold defining bold convening streamlines … but what these two definitions have in common is the word timeless..
After a few sketches, and a few evolutions , here we are proud to say… St Nail’s flagship store is modern and Filipino, true to its form.
Congratulations and more power!
