A typical ocean front balcony
Project : Batter Kay Architects Del Mar, CA When the homeowners in this bluff side Del Mar Oceanfront home purchased this brand new build they were left with what is often the case in a new home an ugly new waterproofed balcony surface. They contacted us for a solution of which we almost always recommend the warmth of wood specifically our interlocking deck tiles. In this case our ipe deck tiles were used to cover this surface, still allowing for drainage but giving the homeowners the look and feel of an ocean front sailboat deck. The deck tiles were cut and snapped together quickly to dramatically transform this space off the master bedroom to create an amazing balcony. A one of kind surface for a special custom home. The homeowners were thrilled yet skeptical the surface would remain this comfortable to walk on for a long period of time. Here we are 15 years later and although the wood has aged to a distinguished silver grey, the look is perfect and compliments the grey stucco which is one of the features of the home.
