Architecture is not for selected few but EVERYONE.

Oliva Deck (Tacoma, Washington State, USA)

The project is a roof deck addition to an existing house to allow the owner to have a breathtaking view of Puget Sound from her rooftop. The deck is situated on the west end of the roof of the main house replacing the triangular hip end of the roof structure. The triangular shape hypotenuse opens out towards the panoramic view above the buildings below.

The roof deck is accessed from inside the house via a stair where it terminates at an enclosed deck entrance on the roof. The roof of the entrance is sloped up towards the view, enhancing the vista as one walks up the stair.
