Elegant terrace design

Modern and simple

The fantastic view of Lake Zurich was the focus of this terrace design: The structured terrace was supplemented and softened with harmonious details and still allows a view of the lake. A solitaire horn in the front part of the terrace sets a space-creating accent. The uniform materialization in the open and covered part of the terrace is smoothly connected. A pre-greyed wooden deck ensures that the wood retains a uniform color despite weathering in both the open and covered sections.

Airy privacy screen

The delicate grasses in the long, narrow planter in the narrow aisle serve as an airy and natural privacy screen from the neighboring house. The planters on the glass front can be planted seasonally and thus always provide new highlights. The grass borders in the front corners, with their low-growing shrubs and grasses, ensure harmonious naturalness and a flowing transition between the terrace and the lake.

The terrace under construction

The covered and the open part of the terrace are smoothly connected by a uniform materialization. For the wooden deck, a pre-greyed wood was used so that the wood does not change unevenly to the covered part of the terrace due to weathering in the open part. The solitaire horn sets a strong space-creating accent and, with its small crown, allows the view both over and under it.
The view to the south is characterized by the open and unobstructed lake view. The two grass borders at the left and right front corners are planted with low-growing Pennisetum ('Little Bunny') to create a flowing transition between the terrace and the lake, perfectly concealing the steel terminations. Accents are set by the woody plants in the planters, which are also low-growing: Pinus on the left and a maple on the right.
