Le Manoir Salon —
Form meets high functionality

We transformed Le Manoir, a five-year-old avant-garde beauty service boutique, into an inspiring fashion-forward hub.

The Challenge

TUX - Manoir - before

It’s been five years since Le Manoir, a boutique offering beauty services, nail expertise and exclusive fashion, first opened its doors to customers. In an effort to maintain a youthful brand image and expand the retail aspect of the business, Le Manoir tasked TUX with creating a new store layout and updating the interior design of the salon, located at the intersection of rue Saint Catherine Street and Saint Laurent Boulevard, in Montreal. One of the main challenges of the project was to create an environment that would be functionally flexible and allow for versatility and customization in terms of aesthetics.

The Idea

With a holistic approach, TUX proposed a multi-scale solution through work that incorporates everything from a well-planned layout and spatial organization to a refined design, using millwork with sophisticated finishes. In order to support Le Manoir’s multipurpose offering, the concept behind the floor plan was an open-space layout with the welcome desk being in the centre of the space. This elegant, multifunctional core piece serves as a service area, a waiting area, and a retail space combined. The use of natural stone as a key texture elevates the brand image and establishes a sense of professionalism through a luxurious and polished feel. Ultimately, the material palette and the construction details generate an overall look that is classically timeless, yet feels unique in its richness.

The Influence

Since its official reopening last November, Le Manoir has seen great success and its photogenic environment has become a natural backdrop for social media users. We hope this fresh and modern retail space continues to become part of Saint Catherine Street's natural backdrop and commercial scene.
