Irish studio dePaor Architects have inserted this oak grid-shell structure into the café area of Dublin Airport's Terminal 2, which opened late last year.

The undulating structure sits in the centre of the OAK bar and provides a canopy over the space.

It's made from strips of veneered plywood that slot into one another.

    This is a really nice interior design. The natural wood really makes the space feel warm and inviting. Great project.

    This is a beautiful and enigmatic project whose spatial inventiveness deserves better photographs.

    I agree, the sections are very interesting spatially but the photos seem to focus on hazy details and not the overall feeling of the space. The 4th photo showing the vaulting is more along the lines of what I'm asking for.

    Looks great, but more then a year ago Studio JVM (Amsterdam) realized a
    similar looking library in an amazing villa in Vals!
