Your average two-car garage offers only 400 square feet of roof deck, but that doesn’t mean it can’t provide an array of outdoor functions and features to suit your everyday needs. In this example, our design brief required just that. As a busy professional couple, the roof deck needed to offer both a peaceful space to work from home, as well as a comfortable space to get away from work, entertain and relax. To that end, the roof offers a number of surfaces to set up a laptop and then immediately forget any work woes and fire-up the grill, pour a glass of wine, call some friends over (or not) and wind down. And with the addition of retractable outdoor canopies and curtains, the space becomes an adjustable enclave to its densely populated urban surroundings.
