Contemporary Terrace with Facing Sofas
Bold Mediterranean blue upholstery livens up this outdoor terrace overlooking a tranquil waterside scene. Deep, facing sofas with an ottoman in between provide a comfortable spot for outdoor conversation.
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.
View of Swings & Dining Area on Elevated, Lakeside Deck
Many of the residential properties on this lake have a boat dock. The Houghtons bought two lots, making room for a boat dock AND a second "party deck" (this was their wish, in two words!). So HGID designed this as a floating lounge, literally - comfy upholstered seating areas with a huge TV, swimming dock (they're wake boarding fanatics) and wet bar complete with a kegerator (they're fanatical for beer). Everything is upholstered in Sunbrella, including the outdoor drapery, which all gets a heavy hose-down in advance of every visit. The couple and their guests can nap, lounge, party and relax there. We're told the lake is a jet ski drag strip on the weekends, so good spectator seating!
Low-maintenance landscaping and artificial turf groundcover create a lush green space on this urban rooftop deck. A combination of planters and container gardens are integrated into the contemporary design, giving guests a variety of foliage to admire both indoors and out.
Updated Roof Deck With Fire Pit, Outdoor Bar and Seating
The Bucktown Hot Tub Retreat provides a serene space to relax amid the active city. The space features a new roof deck with Ipe decking, concrete counters, cedar pergola, tempered glass panels and fire pit. Additional features include seating around the fire pit, sun loungers, bar area and outdoor refrigerator/freezer.
Modern Condo Includes Rooftop Terrace With Incredible DC Views
On the top floor, an enclosed deck allows the owners to take advantage of DC's sunnier days. When they're not lounging on the wicker sectional, feet propped up on the ottoman, they can wander around and soak up views of the city.
Wood Deck with Red Flowers in Square Beds with Surrounding Grasses and Plants
The landscape architects of this space explored the use of scale, shape and color to create a detailed, nuanced patio, garden and yard. The square beds containing red plants and flowers bring a sense of order, while the garden beyond feels wild and untamed; this creates a pleasing sense of balance.
Red cushioned furniture grouped around a stone table creates an inviting conversation area on this spacious deck nestled in a wooded landscape. A large arbor offers shade and another eye-catching element.
