Kater Street Deck
Our client's backyard open area, like many Philadelphia yards, was initially a slab on the first floor. Because their kitchen and living space are on the second floor, this outside space was effectively unusable. By adding the second floor deck, we created a more accessible and truly usable outside space. The space serves as an informal dining and seating area. Lattice work was added to the neighbors wall to create some interest on an otherwise monotonous stucco wall.
The front terrace was also redone in order to maintain a coherent appearance and to correct a leak that had been on going and worsening for several years.
