Hamilton, OH

The large, wide deck on the rear of this residence ran the entire length of the house, making the lower level dark. The owners desired an exterior space for entertaining at both levels, which would compliment the architecture of the house and connect it to the garden below. The solution by Beckwith Chapman Associates was to scale back the deck, creating two separate balconies allowing light to penetrate through to the lower level of the house. A brick terrace was created at the lower level and the yard was terraced with a series of stone retaining walls. An entry pergola was created to greet visitors from the driveway. Lighting accentuates the detailing of the balconies and pergola.
