This backyard patio in West Berkeley was designed by the client but built by me. A large raised planter is incoporated onto the back of the corner bench, and the deck steps down to a built in grill. Hidden string lights are incorporated into the front edge of the bench and along the rim of the deck. A smaller square planter echos the larger forms across the open space. Built from 5/4 and 1x Batu hardwood with hidden fasteners.
