Shangrila - Marin County, CA

This space is perfect for entertaining! When the owners originally moved in, this deck was not here. There were several steps down from the kitchen door, and the stone slabs were a toe-stubbing minefield. We added the deck and designed it perfectly for entertaining. Since we had several large pine trees removed from the property, we increased sun exposure creating a need for more shade. We had this awning custom made by PJ Canvas in Santa Rosa, CA. The awning tucks neatly under the roof of the house during the rainy months.
Fabric awningsAlthough different textiles are not created equal in terms of sound absorption, any fabric is better than no fabric when it comes to reducing outdoor noise levels. Thicker, highly textured weaves and natural fibres are usually better at absorbing sound, so if you’ve received some noise complaints and are thinking of installing an awning, try opting for these types of textiles. - sharon_ratnaraja

Timber deckingAs a general rule, sound waves reflect off hard, smooth materials and are absorbed or diffused by porous, pliable surfaces. This is why concrete stairwells are akin to echo chambers, while a recording studio of the same size – with foam-clad walls – absorbs sound and reduces reverberations.Of all the natural building materials we use, timber is one of the best at absorbing and diffusing sound waves. Decking helps turn down the volume more than concrete, tiles or bricks, which is th - dmosher
