The Line House modern-deck

The Line House

The steep site on which this residence is located dictated the use of a retaining wall to create a level grade. This retaining wall, or “the line”, became the driving element behind the parti of the home and serves to organize the program for the clients. The rituals of daily life fall into place along the line which is expressed as sandblasted exposed concrete and modular block. Three aspects of a house were seperated in this project: Thinking, Living, & Doing. ‘Thinking’ is done in the library, the main house is for ‘living’, and ‘doing’ is in the shop. While each space is separated by walls and windows they are nonetheless connected by “the line”.

Sustainability is married in equal parts to the concept of The Line House. The residence is located along an east/west axis to maximize the benefits of daylighting and solar heat gain. Operable windows maximize natural cross ventilation and reduce the need for air conditioning. Photo Credit: Michael Robinson

Love the look of this tiled deck and railing; could imagine our deck looking like this. Also like the color of the wood siding.

2nd story outdoor deck, accessible from the indoor catwalk. Will have views of the adjacent park next door and tree tops in my backyard. Would be approximately 11' by 6', perfect for morning coffee and reading a book ;-)
