Project Description

This Mediterranean-style home in Berkeley, California was in need of an update after more than two decades of ownership. After saving money for nearly a decade, the owners hired Sogno Design Group to overhaul the kitchen, add two new bedrooms, and create a stunning rooftop deck. Connected to the master bedroom, the rooftop deck was constructed using Bison 2x2 Smooth Ipê Wood Tiles installed on top of steel joists supported by Bison Level.It Pedestals. The wood tiles can be lifted to clean underneath, inspect the roof membrane, and/or for roof maintenance. The perfectly level deck was installed flush with the interior’s finished floors to create a seamless transition from indoor to out. The steps to the master bedroom were custom built by the contractor from Bison Wood Tiles for a flawless solution for this beautiful bungalow remodel.
