Presiding over the Canyon

Perched on a ridge beyond the Berkeley Hills, this home’s huge wraparound deck stretches out into the air. Stained-glass insets in the railing play off the light, and a custom wood bench provides seating along the front porch. The back garden area is tiled with hand-cut stone, with a rock garden that cleverly incorporates stone steps.

Zen Treetop Deck in the Hills

Nestled among the Oakland treetops, this homeowner created a wrap-around deck that took full advantage of its surroundings.

A simple, zen-like design was developed to reflect the Japanese styling of the house structure. Steps were added to create a natural flow between deck entrance points. Redwood was chosen to create a seamless and uniform appearance. Open bench seating was also integrated into the deck design to create areas for social gathering. Prior to the deck, Zeus Design Build had also installed a bathroom addition.
