Creating this deck was a special solution to an issue of fragmented space. The homeowners had two old decks separated by a large yard. They envisioned a project that would unite the two decks and connect the outdoor spaces. We redesigned their old decks with cedar and built a third deck to connect the two. The third deck was higher than the yard, but lower than the two other decks, creating multiple diverse spaces.
To keep the flow continuous between the various levels, we used cable railing that allowed for transparency between the landscape and decks. We also extended the cedar to clad the underside of the decks, drawing the eye across all spaces. Finally, we added a trellis for gardening over one area.
