K Deck Addition
All projects, big or small, can benefit from the input of an Architect. This was the case for a deck addition to a home sitting on the mountainside in Olympus Cove. The existing home’s position on the site and layout of the rooms didn’t take advantage of the great western view of the Salt Lake Valley. The client wanted to better capitalize on the great view by adding a deck to the side of their home. They also wanted a thorough and detailed drawing set (down to the type of fasteners to use) put together to accurately convey their needs to the contractor. Cutting out an existing window to add a patio door through a spare bedroom gained access to the side-yard and the valley view. Working closely with the client we designed multiple options for size, railing, trellis, and color options using plans, renderings, and photo manipulation. In the end a custom and unique deck, railing, and trellis extends the usable square footage of the home and makes some incredible entertaining and hang out space to sit and watch nature paint the sky.
