This freeform soffit structure is comprised of Alaskan Yellow Cedar (AYC) battens, custom CNC'd into curved profiles to follow the doubly covered surface. It was carefully pre-panelized off site to meet the necessarily exacting standards. The prefabricated panels were created with 4 layers of plywood, creating a structural shell.
