Right over the concrete, a curvey new deck.
During an extensive remodel, Martino decided to make the patio more hospitable for outdoor living. He removed the offending awning, decked over the entire concrete slab, and added a planter.
The new redwood deck forms a distinctive platform that seems to float over the lawn. To tie indoors and outdoors together, the deck surface--8 inches above the slab--was set at the same level as the floor of the house.
To provide shade without cutting off too much light from the house, Martino built a rectangular trellis at one end of the deck. Eventually, vines will cover the trellis, adding more shade.
