Deck and Hardscape Path in Lincoln Park
This family wanted to build a deck above a rarely used basement staircase and provide a clear path between the home and garage. We worked with our construction partner on this project, David Bambic, of Bambic Construction, to design a removable platform deck that maintains access to the basement. The hardscape patio recycled existing cement pavers and integrated them with cut bluestone in a new pathway. The diamond grid of the border course parallel to the deck was influenced by a visit to gardens in Koyoto, Japan.
