A Deck with a View

This tri-level deck for grand entertaining was commissioned by a San Francisco designer. He had worked with us before and knew we would bring a sense of coherence and style to this project while handling the complexities of existing retaining walls and an abrupt and unpredictable downhill slope. Crisply detailed interlocking forms clad in wood siding with glass windscreens and frameless railings create a unique visual statement accented by a spiral stair with spiraling rails. The up-kicked trellis at the top level adds a note of whimsy and indoor-outdoor flow is maximized by the use of a NanaWall. Interior work includes redesign of the interior stair to create more visual unity with the rest of the house. To add a little magic and create a sense of openness between the master bedroom and the stair we designed a six foot wide pivoting door which we clad in leather over magnetic metal, resulting in an expressive wall that could also be used as a personal note board.
