PRIVATE RESIDENCE; chicago, illinois
 designer, interiors:  roof deck concept design
700 sq feet; Concept thru ??
year 2011
while the interior of this couples home reflected their modern sensibility and flexible lifestyle by utilizing a rich color palette infused with texture and pattern, simple and purposeful accents and stunning signature pieces, the same could not be said for their deck.

the deck is loaded with potential and a few obstacles to navigate around  as well.  The owners had some great ideas but needed help creating a cohesive story for their many thoughts . . .

the wish list

+ having recently returned from a tropical adventure (fiji I believe) they loved the tropical feel but did not want anything too theme'y' and of course the exterior living needed to compliment the fabulous interiors.

the constant

below is my solution for their project, which is flexible enough to grow with their needs and as their budget grows they will be able to easily add the layers that add visual interest and functionality.

originally the client had discussed what is shown in option B
to afford them more flexibility and better flow I suggested option A
concept & plan notes; a blueprint for them to move forward.
