Doesn't the wood deck need ventilation underneath?

The answer is "It depends". Normally you want 12" of airflow between the bottom of the deck board and the ground. IF you have sufficient drainage you can go lower as in this instance. Where problems arise is when you the deck is low to the ground and moisture isn't redirected away from underneath. The sun beats down, it heats up underneath (think greenhouse) and essentially steams the wood making it more supple in turn....... resulting in cupping/crowning/twisting.

Dwelling on Design, Deborah Derocher
Ipe wood is typically a deep rich color and is best known for its resistance to rot and pests. If you did not wish to color it deeper then I would suggest using a Thompson water sealer to protect the coloring, although not typically necessary with this wood. Ipe is often used indoors as well. It's a beautiful wood that will not disappoint if you chose to use it... however it is costly per square foot than other outdoor typical woods.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Pangaea Interior Design, Portland, OR added this to 30 Dream Decks for Lounge Lovers
If you don't have a view, then create your own. The architecture of the home, the ball sculptures and the pool are all absolutely beautiful surroundings for this simple deck in a courtyard-style home.
Josh Atkinson - Atkinson Aquatech Pools and Spas added this to Find Your Perfect Pool Shape
Geometric shapes are commonly referred to as traditional, but also are classified as modern or contemporary based on their rectilinear or sharp, clean lines.
5. Ubermodern in Menlo Park. Nothing more than a set of lounge chairs is needed to enjoy this modern backyard space in California. The contrasting colors — red-orange wood, blue water and blue chairs — immediately caught Houzzers' eyes.
