Benches and planters built into two-level deck.

Benches and planters built into two-level deck To reclaim this sloping back yard in Piedmont, California, San Francisco architect Bernard Stein designed a multipurpose deck. Built-in planters divide it into two distinct areas.

The upper section hs a wraparound bench made of 2-by-6s. A fiberglass spa set into a square plywood surround occupies one corner. The lower section has its own built-in seating, including an L-shaped bench built along one of the planters. Vertically lapped redwood siding sheathes the benches and planters.
