Ipe Deck, Veyrier, Genève
The deck commissioned by our client in Veyrier was a 35 square metre deck designed to replace a tired pond in front of the house. This presented some minor additional work to fill the pond and ensure the foundation was solid enough to receive a deck that weighs 4.5 metric tonnes when complete. The client had an open mind as to the materiel so we provided a dozen samples and the awesome choice of Ipé was made. This is a beautiful, highly resistant & low maintenance hard wood which we love to work with and strongly recommend for external decks. The high quality treated frame sits on a compacted base and concrete slabs, it will probably last longer than the house!
