    AFTER: Duebber expanded the old deck, squaring it off for a more modern look, and added a staircase to connect it to a new patio below. Note how the beams extend past the deck. “I wanted to add the strong horizontal elements to balance out the verticality of the porch,” the architect says. “This detail also nods to midcentury modern style, which the homeowners love.” The pitch of the roof and the proportions take their cues from that architectural era as well.The new patio was also part of the backyard renovation. It has room for grilling and lounging in modern Adirondack chairs, and a small water feature, shown at the lower left of this photo, provides the pleasing sound of bubbling water. Wood lattice screens out the black hole of space under the deck and defines the patio area, while a new stone wall provides extra seating. Duebber worked the backyard plan around the existing doors to the walk-out basement, which open right onto the new patio.
