The "Termite Mound" is an award winning installation for one of the rooms in the San Francisco Showcase House. Studio SHK--which had won a competition to design one room in the house--approached Oblique City with the idea of creating an African themed children's play structure to complement the overall design of the room. The structure is created by stacking layers of CNC-cut maple plywood, held together with strategically placed metal rods. The room itself won first prize for Interiors at San Francisco Design Week.

As part of an extensive design/build home remodel in an upscale Laguna Beach neighborhood, Oblique City was given one additional task: "Design a kitchen island, and please make it 'different'." The end result was this cantilevered peninsula. The dining room side consists of 43 layers of CNC milled Russian birch plywood. The business side consists of custom doors and drawer front made from bright orange resin, framed with thin aluminum. As a backdrop, Oblique City custom fabricated a modular cabinet wall from raw, corrugated aluminum panels.
