Muah Salon and Spa is a 2,300 SF tenant build-out in Grand Rapids. As a displaced tenant, (due to the Itasca County Courthouse Expansion), Muah’s owner approached HAWK’s design-build team with a creative vision and an aggressive schedule. The owner researched several Grand Rapids area sites before landing on a typical “vanilla box” strip mall space. HAWK’s role was to bring to life, the owners vision for a 1940’s Hollywood “glam” style salon, complete with lots of “bling”, crystal chandeliers, floating fabric backdrops, a striking color black, grey, and pink color scheme, and faux “marble” floors.
Although the project was caught up in construction during the pandemic, the owners persevered, handled some of the construction themselves, and the project was completed on time and on budget.
