In order to make the lower patio unique the metal structure was left exposed to give it a utilitarian look. The congregated galvanized sheets were left in their silver tone but the metal I-beams were painted to match the vinyl shake siding. To offset the veneer stonework we used TimberSIL as contemporary wood wall paneling.
The formed cement retaining wall was covered with sleepers to stand the wood panels off the wall surface. They were then stained flat black to hide them from view. The panels were cut to size, stained, and installed. Four low-voltage wash lights were installed to highlight the walls and to create a more intimate mood.
