Given arguably the most spectacular position for a roof deck in Vancouver, we choose to do less and let the situation be the star. This week our office began installation of a penthouse project and started at the very top. The deck has two distinct areas, one is designated for lounge, the second houses a setting for dining. We started by paving the roof in a flamed sand coloured granite to create a light reflecting surface. The lounge area is composed of two identical seating groupings. Large scale umbrellas provide intimacy (fashioning a ceiling) under an infinite sky. Whilst commodious furniture is set for 'al fresco' repose for one (in contemplation) or many ( for receptions). The summer weather today was as much a reward, as seeing this space come together so beautifully. Night time will be magical.
