Smoke-Like Sculpture as a Narrative of Restaurant's Innovation of Barbeque Cuisine

Wexler’s is a barbecue pit in San Francisco designed by San Francisco based architects Aidlin Darling. The centerpoint of the restuarant is a dynamic undulating ceiling installation evoking barbecue smoke. The sculpture is composed of laser cut MDF fins and bridges the gap between old and new by linking the modern insertion to the historic facade.

The rest of the restaurant is composed of a restrained palette of zinc and rift-sawn oak warmed by the honey glow of indirect lighting. The materials are given an uncharacteristic sense of refinement similar to the cuisine itself. Moreover, the design is meant to act "as a narrative to highlight the innovative treatment of traditional barbeque cuisine".
