this backyard was an amazing transformation that focuses on livable outdoor spaces for a young family. this is not your standard deck, but a hybrid of different spaces that come together to create a playful and versatile outdoor living experience.

the new deck offers ample outdoor living spaces, varying levels and surfaces, uncovered and covered areas, and most importantly, a seamless transition from the indoors to the backyard.

the backyard was not fit for outdoor living. the dilapidated deck was entirely demolished to start from scratch.

the uncovered concrete patio features a custom-designed concrete fire pit that warms up the space and functions as a patio table. this uniquely integrated design completes the versatile functionality of this outdoor living space.

the view of the deck was unattractive and dysfunctional. it was in desperate need of some creative solutions.

the extra space afforded by the new patio effectively doubles the living area!

the old layout did not provide great usage of the space.
