Overview

The shape of this 1,200 sq. ft. canopy was inspired by the 3D “ripple-cone" geometric form chosen by the architect. The resulting complex wave structure was modeled and created with 53 parallel CNC-cut Spruce LVL strands, panelized into 6 sections, shipped to site, assembled into one piece and erected by our crew.
