Sorry for the delay getting back to you. The roof deck is accessed by way of a ladder located in the master bedroom that leads up to a custom, glass roof hatch.

How is the deck built to ensure the first floor doesn't get wet?

Under the wood deck is a welded-seam, single-ply membrane roof that slopes to a gutter on the north side of the tower. And, by the way, the master bedroom is on the 3rd floor - the roof deck is the 4th floor.

What are you using for the railing on the roof patio? It looks great.
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
David Coleman / Architecture
The railing was custom made from our design plans using aluminum stanchions and welded wire mesh infill panels.
