Private landscape design

Lily Jencks






Designed by:

A wooden deck design for a private house in Cape Cod, Massachusetts, to provide social spaces for a variety of functions, and privacy screenings from a near-by path. The trellis structure, and series of platforms, break up the elevation and divide the deck into a number of 'rooms' for use during larger social events, or smaller gatherings. 



The deck is fabricated using generic timber sections and creates a linear language that is repeated in the shadows. Each screen frames a different view as you walk along the deck.
