Our design takes inspiration from the fact that in order to bowl better and strike more pins, a bowler must toss the ball in an indirect manner. This idea was extended into a kind of geometric plane whereby straight lines leading from the alleys are combined with an oblique and indirect shape that bring bowlers from the outside through the amenities spaces and onto the lanes. The ceiling incorporates the linear lights and hides the mechanical system—the ceiling therefore works as an integrated servicing mesh that performs and delights.
