Traditional Meets Contemporary

Traditional Meets Contemporary

Challenges

The clients' traditional frame house had an aging deck. The sophisticated owners desired a new terrace with a contemporary flair.

Opportunities & Solutions

Removing the deck was the easy part. We designed a raised terrace with clean lines using a traditional face brick - which matches the chimney - to construct a buffet, seat wall, and grill island. The bluestone pavers create a modern look and the dramatic steps are feathered to retain and integrate with the sloping grade of the yard. A sleek custom fire table serves as the focal point for the entire property.
