Challenges
One of the most challenging
elements of the design was the
undulating wood louver ceiling
on the restaurant interior, says
Touloukian. "Although the
louvers were designed as a
series of modular pieces, the
field of louvers are constantly
moving along different
axis to create depth and
movement along the ceiling
plane. In order to coordinate
the locations, heights, and
structural connections of the
louvers, the woodworking firm
created full scale, CNC routed
mockups as a reflected ceiling
plan. The installers were able
to lay the mockups on the floor
to the ceiling plane and using

lasers, align the louvers with
the steel supports above. This
coordination ensured there
were no clashes between the
louvers and any lighting, fire
protection, mechanical or AV
equipment."
Gaglio notes that the
entire project was complex
due to the multiple angles,
although the interior grid
ceiling system was the
biggest challenge because of
the coordination required to
lay out the ceiling around the
MEP systems above. "MOD
Interiors CNC programmed
and etched the ceiling system
full scale on 1/8" fiber board,
installed it on the job site
floor to be used by all trades

to locate lights, sprinkler
heads etc. as well as the unistrut and bracket locations
for our wood structure."
"We also attended weekly
job meetings, biweekly BIM
modeling meetings, and
provided mockups of various
details and finishes, provided
layout templates and job site
supervision when needed,
as well as added manpower
when needed to maintain
schedule," he adds.

Bright Team
"Our working relationship
with MOD was seamless and
highly rewarding," recalls
Touloukian. "We were able to
create a workflow with open

communication that utilized
each parties' experiences
and knowledge to create the
highest quality end product.
MOD worked through several
processes from fabrication to
finishes to test the efficiency
of the design intent and made
several recommendations on
how it might be improved."
Our working relationship
was excellent, echoes
Gaglio. "It took a great
deal of collaboration and
coordination on site and in
the shop to work out details
and finishes on the wood
components as well as the
brackets and fasteners."
