A view can set the pace for any outdoor living area.  In modern city housing, a rooftop outdoor living space needs comfortable seating from which to enjoy the view.  Well-maintained pots of greenery and even wall gardens can be installed to enhance a natural setting.

Lighting is just as significant outdoors as it is for interiors if you want to enjoy nights in your backyard.  Overhead lighting installed on the house illuminates larger areas, while lighting on stairs and decking add accent.  Additional lighting from outdoor lamps and fire pits add to the overall ambiance.

Architectural features, such as overhead structures and interesting details, give the modern outdoor space interest.  Built-in benches, planter boxes and fire pits create interesting functional areas.  When you want to take a break from the sun, overhead structures provide shade and shelter from the weather.

For the finishing touch, pay attention to details that make the space more welcoming.  Neatly arranged planters and sections of greenery soften the space and add color throughout the year.  Unique sculptures add interest.  Fire pits and outdoor stereo systems raise the entertainment and comfort level.  Don’t forget throw pillows for added comfort, style and color.
