The View



Create a flexible, seasonal space to extend the current living room space and maximise the view.

Challenges & Solutions

The existing deck area was insufficient for outdoor furniture and facing east had a magnificent view of the ocean, however became shaded over the course of the day. Because the existing substructure of the deck was steel, it became useful to cantilever sections of new steel to enlarge the floor space. The addition of glass as the only external material accentuated and enhanced the view. The crowning detail was the curved corner glass that created a dynamic shape and a seamless view. With an operable roof that enclosed the space yet allowed sun penetration and ceiling mounted heaters the space became and all season space.
