REAR YARD, EAST BRUNSWICK, NJ

2009


The owners of this suburban rear yard requested an outdoor dining area which preserved the yard for play. A simple deck was proposed with a network of posts and beams weaving together three zones: entry, sitting and dining. A series of horizontal elements define the zones including a planter, a bench and a cantilevered BBQ. Wood screening shades the dining area while deep wide steps serve as bleachers to watch the games.
