Inspirational Design of the Week: Outdoor Constellation Wall

A fun, unique, and interactive outdoor light installation combining two of our favorite things — art + science! Created by LGA Architectural Partners for a family in Toronto, Canada, the firm depicted a starry night sky on the family’s garage door.

The design includes representations of the constellations Sagittarius, Scorpio, as well as Orion. The patterns were created using a laser-cutter, after which LED lights were installed  to illuminate the design from behind — the lights were fitted in the four-inch-deep cavity of the doors.

We absolutely love the installation, and what it adds to the outdoor atmosphere of this home. It’s a true conversation piece, that we’re sure will remain with them for many years. What are your thoughts on the design? We’d love to hear from you in the comments!
