Wexler’s, a restaurant in San Francisco, has a unique laser-cut canopy installation that covers the entrance and the whole of its interior. The architects of this canopy, Aidlin Darling Design, explain the concept:

Our design process started with an office-wide charrette where we reviewed the connotations of American barbeque cuisine along with the opportunities and constraints of the space, which is located between an historic masonry fa├žade and a 1980’s midrise addition. This conversation lead to the design of the dynamic, undulating ceiling installation that literally bridges the gap between the old and new as it extends through the space while evoking smoke, charred wood, and the skeletal remains of one’s dinner.
