No, it was a custom application, I only designed the canopy.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Cox kept the concept simple. He wanted to avoid a design with too many moving parts, instead allowing honest materials and creative design to shine through.A living-dining area already opened onto a deck and back lawn. The deck was functional but not all that inviting. In California embracing the indoor-outdoor relationship is a must, so Cox’s first move was to put in a new ipe deck that was level with the interior floor. With the elimination of that step down, the transition outdoors became seamless; the outdoor space became more inviting. He extended the deck to the fence line, delaying the visual break between deck, ground and fence. Once the deck reached the fence, however, that inevitable “Now what?” moment arose. Instead of abruptly ending there, he delayed the visual break longer and ran the deck 7 feet up.The vertical portion of the deck serves as the back for a built-in cantilevered bench, so the team built it at a 7-degree angle. Cox also included a vertical succulent planter that is mounted onto an internal wall structure. A canopy shades the deck. UV-repellent fabric from Serge Ferrari slides easily across a simple cable structure like a curtain.

He extended the deck to the fence line, delaying the visual break between deck, ground and fence. Once the deck reached the fence, however, that inevitable “Now what?” moment arose.
