Connect with H&H

Bare Minimum Back Deck

A large window at the back of the house slides open completely to connect interior and exterior.

Dufflet Rosenberg, owner of renowned bakery Dufflet Pastries, and her architect husband Martin Kohn, created a pared-down space to entertain on their back deck. The interior polished-concrete floors feel seamless with the concrete deck. The sparsity of the elements found on the deck, such as a small bonsai tree, a sculpture of a human figure and Eames chairs, is reminiscent of a contemporary art gallery.
