The railings were water jet cut with a custom pattern MacCracken Architects designed to echo the client's climbing bougainvillea.  Here, the panels arrive on a flatbed shortly before being craned into place.

Plyboo Ceiling

Plyboo Ceiling

Plyboo panels are installed.  Each panel has been routed with perforations and grooves, giving a linear visual texture to the material as well as improving the acoustics in the space.  

Bent Planes

Bent Planes

The angles of the ceiling and floor planes expand and contract as one moves through the space.  Minimal, recessed lights are flush with the panels, and may be pivoted to cast light on changing artwork.
