Project: Furstenau Residence

When reproofing his house, this owner noticed that the views from his roof top allowed him to see miles into the Raccoon River basin. While he was just starting to date his wife, they would drag a ladder to the side of the house and sip wine while sitting on his roof peak.

Years later when he decided to add on and remodel his home, the belvedere became the central design feature. Now accessible by a circular stair, the deck allows for a more comfortable view.
