Northfield Deck and Pergola

Pergola and Clouds

A little bit of painting is all that is left to be done for this deck in Northfield, designed by Peter Schmelzer of Vivus Architecture + Design and built by Northfield Construction.

Our client asked us to design an upscale, shaded deck to enhance the look of the home, supplement the existing screen porch, and provide space for outdoor entertaining. The resulting deck responds in scale and proportion to the existing home, improving the aesthetic of the home.

We like how the light plays on the structure, highlighting the intentionaly simple geometries of the pergola and guardrail. The paint is still fresh, so the deck hasn’t seen much use yet. As the summer winds down, the final touches will be added and the deck will be inhabited, the true test of its beauty and functionality.
