At this waterfront residence in Rocky River, Ohio,
about 15 miles outside of Cleveland, the homeowners
requested a deck where they could host a sit-down
meal for 100 guests, placed in such a way that the
lake view from the living room would not be disrupted.
They also requested a swimming pool. After presenting
multiple designs, HWH Architects Engineers Planners
ultimately created an infinity pool at the top of the bluff
with a tiered waterfall cascade and a large rectangular
Trex Company deck below connected by stairs. The
checkerboard pattern in the deck will serve as a small
helicopter-landing pad. Prior to construction, the area
was an unsightly vegetated hillside overlooking the lake.
