Acrylic 'wave wall' brightens café

April 01, 2007 |

As part of its tropical water motif for the newly renovated café at the Children's Hospital in Richmond, Va., local architect Baskervill designed a coloful, transparent “wave wall” that extends the full length of a load-bearing wall in the dining space. The waves were fabricated with 1/4-inch-thick, 48x96-inch sheets of Acrylite FF acrylic, which were custom-cut and routed into assorted wave patterns and connected to the wall from varying distances with round brushed stainless-steel metal standoffs. The depth variation creates an interweaving effect while the incandescent lighting installed above mimics the sun shining on ocean waves.
