This Koi Pond Deck cantilevers 3' out over water giving the koi a shady place to hang out.       Free - form lines enhance the Design, and a stair stepped bridge takes you over the water and on to this koi pond deck.

The decking is Ipe, the railing elements old growth wr cedar and copper.

The Design problem here was to hide the equipment area, and soften all the straight and rectangular lines.

  The setting is above a golf course set down in a canyon and has a view of the ocean beyond that far ridge line.







  This ipe decking is the   perfect wood for  outdoor use, hard and stable, and  it will soon weather to a beautiful silver, and require no  maintence. 






  The copper pipe will soon develope a nice patina,  being so close to the ocean.



   The stepped Zig Zag bridge takes you ' across ' the pond, and onto the deck space.







   The railing components are fabricated from clear, vertical grained western red cedar, another very nice outdoor wood !

This beautiful old-growth W.R. cedar comes from Vancouver Island, B.C. These are  naturally downed trees, not clear-cut, and are so valuable that they go in and take them out by helicopter !

The 5" wide board has over 100 growth rings!




   It's only inches to the

  pond surface.           




  The koi like to hang-out under the broad overhang !




 The hatch gives access to the pond equipment
