Lancer & Lace Salon opened in 2016 at 2317 Sixth Ave. in the Insignia Towers condo project in downtown Seattle.

Collaborative Companies designed and built out the 2,300-square-foot space, which includes a 400-square-foot mezzanine. Lara Marvel worked with the Seattle firm on the interior design.

In a press release, Collaborative Companies said it had to be strategic in the layout of the empty shell, given the limited square footage.

Key areas, including styling and shampoo stations, private esthetician rooms and restrooms, connect through a central core that helps guide people through the space. The design team also inserted a concrete and steel stair that leads to a new mezzanine. This created additional square footage for esthetician rooms, office space, laundry and a break room.

Julia Anderson and Katie Rainwater own the salon, which is named after the Secret Service handles for former President John F. Kennedy and First Lady Jackie Kennedy Onassis.

The design used concrete, walnut and steel as a canvas for the owners to display their collection of original art pieces, including a portrait of the salon's namesakes by Seattle artist Cheyenne Randall. There's also custom walnut styling stations and a walnut canopy in the entry designed in-house by Collaborative Companies.
