Lori asked for a space where she could both get some quiet sun but also entertain in in the evening on the top of her three story home in the DuPont Circle neighborhood.  We came up with a two-level plan with sunny lounge area (with honeysuckle-enclosed outdoor shower for a refreshing splash) and covered nook for evening cocktails.  Cream stained wood mixes with mahogany colored composite decking to for a contemporary, restful look.  Per Lori's request, a miniature prairie runs along the outside edges of the deck; native grasses, bulbs, prennials and vines soften the views of the Washington skyline.
