This Chicago rooftop was created using extensive space atop a Lakeview garage. The project required incorporating the client’s existing hot tub and turning the deck into a place that could be enjoyed year round. The second goal was achieved by utilizing a retractable roof and shades. Two fire pits brought warmth to space even in the cold Chicago winters and composite decking made it maintenance free throughout all seasons. Customized built-ins and an L-shaped bar with a concrete top made it the perfect space for entertaining. Glass railings and a widened eight-foot wide stairway provide a grand entrance for parties of any size.
