Project 9998 – Elmhurst, IL
Multi-level deck off a 100 year old Sears Avondale Home. Each “room” has a unique function. Relaxation in the shade from the southern exposure, the first room is covered by a roof extension which blends into the existing porch roof. A few steps down leads into the “entertaining room” with an outdoor kitchen tucked into a corner to isolate the heat of the grill but still keeps the chef actively involved with entertaining guests. A few steps down is the “dining room” tucked under a rectangular umbrella. The final “room” is the garden where a babbling brook serves to provide both a relaxing spa experience and entertainment for barefooted children.
