This contemporary home exterior features corrugated metal panels paired with large sliding glass doors that help create open air spaces between the inside and outside of the home. A large wooden deck surrounds the home, allowing the homeowners to relax and enjoy the waterfront view.
The curved roof of the home was inspired by similar ones the owners spotted on a camping trip to New Zealand. Natural materials and planters blur the line between indoor and outdoor living areas, drawing the tropical backyard into the home.
An outdoor dining table makes it easy to entertain under the stars and bright lights of Chicago on this urban rooftop deck. Ceramic planters and wooden container gardens offer privacy while adding a lively touch to the outdoor living space.
This outdoor space is very manicured and well-balanced. Light wicker furniture with white cushions looks lovely against the wood deck. Sharp corners create a beautiful, contemporary look for the swimming pool, which features in-water lounge chairs and a jacuzzi.
A wide wooden deck is perfect for entertaining while a matching wooden bench surrounded by container plants provides extra seating. Red window casings pop against brown raised panel shutters and match the red front door.
