This backyard covers various purposes with grace and efficiency. The areas right off the house are primarily for relaxing and entertaining and include a pool, patio and a cantilevered deck. Stairs lead down to a lower level garden, featuring a pretty range of drought-tolerant plants.
The cantilevered bed pavilion is clad in dark wood, and anchors the space — a central object around which everything revolves. A dark wood floor and wood stair treads lead through and around the apartment, spiraling up onto the wood deck at the roof.
“To create this peaceful retreat above bustling Center City Philadelphia, we selected natural materials and finishes to bring softness and comfort to what had been a barren rooftop,” says designer Barbara Eberlein. “Teak furniture does not need to be stored indoors during the winter,” she notes, and “direct sunlight is mitigated with enormous cantilever umbrellas.” Get the same effect in your own city sanctuary with a single umbrella and a cushy all-weather armchair.

Steps lit from beneath by LED lighting appear to float beneath the cantilevered second-story addition to the home.
The studio/pool house is actually a freestanding structure, but it feels connected to the main house because of a wood-clad accent wall. Pergolas cantilever out over the deck providing shade and visual interest.
The ocean bluff side of the house is a narrow strip designed and installed with strictly low impact uses. A cantilevered deck, native plants, dry-laid pavers and a bocce court bring the living outside. On a clear day, the homeowners watch pelicans fishing, hang gliders drifting by at eye level and surfers in the white water from their breakfast table.
This incredible outdoor space has all the razzle dazzle of a futuristic fantasy. Decks and terraces are cantilevered atop one another. The infinity pool gets underwater cube stools and purple lighting.
