Jeremy took on two projects to help finish off his Chicago rooftop deck and kindly tagged the flickr photos documenting them with "apartmenttherapychicago". He built a gate to match the previously built fencing and added a patch of green to an area that was not covered with decking (photos below the jump). We really like clean aesthetic of the roof deck design - that long built-in planter, the trees in matching large pots AND that dark table and chairs - patio modern!
The grassy area is actually faux - Jeremy writes that it is called Synlawn. He said it was a good option "based on price, ease of installation, and most importantly it had the least cheese factor of the fake grass options we considered."
The gate was built to match a pre-existing fence. It allows access to the a/c units on the roof while masking the view of them. It wasn't an easy fit - the roof is sloped. Jeremy details the work involved in his photos (and shows off a great view of downtown in the process).
A shot of both jobs completed!
Nice work, Jeremy. Thanks for tagging your photos in Flickr with "apartmenttherapychicago".
