    The owners of the upper-most floor in a four-story residential building wanted to extend their living space by adding a roof deck for personal relaxation, family use and entertaining. The roof area needed to include seating, dining and cooking spaces, and a sauna integrated into the stair penthouse structure. The deck captures panoramic views of the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz, Coit Tower and beyond. A steel super-structure distributes the deck loads to the existing exterior walls avoiding structural work below. Features include durable stainless-steel cabinetry, engineered thin slate pavers, Ipe wood guards, glass wind-screens and integrated LED edge lighting for more serene nighttime enjoyment.
