Students from the School of Architecture and Urban Planning (SARUP) at the University of Wisconsin sought to redesign local cafe Roast Coffee Co. with this surfing-inspired structure. Dubbed the Double Overhead, its inspiration is a wave that is twice as tall as a surfer, and is meant to conjure up images of the nearby Lake Michigan shoreline.
It also feeds into the shop's 1950s modernist vibe, and is made from reclaimed wood, including materials from a 150-year-old church and 100-year-old barn. It's definitely a welcome addition to the space. [arch daily]
