Sweeping Views of the Seattle Skyline

March 7, 2017

When faced with a much needed new roof, Adrian Burton Jovanovic, seized the opportunity to create a rooftop deck topped with a beautiful solarium.


Whether reading, relaxing with a glass of wine or hosting a concert, the Seattle skyline creates the perfect ambiance with sweeping views.


Zillow asked Jovanovic some questions in a recent article and his responses will make you want a rooftop deck, too!


Q: What inspired you to create a sanctuary?


A: The unique 360-degree rooftop view, with Puget Sound in front and the park’s tree canopy in back inspired me to create a space where that unobstructed view could be experienced and enjoyed. I also drew inspiration from New York’s unique High Line park.


Q:  How did you build your sanctuary?


A: I was fortunate to find architect Nick Robertson of Studio Piano Nobile, who with his partner, artist Isabelle Grizzard Robertson, was able to synthesize my general ideas into a beautiful design/build plan while finding practical solutions to the various issues that inevitably came up throughout the project. Construction lead Kip Shirey and his colleague Ray Krona did a great job of building it out, while solving construction challenges (such as working with huge glass panels in an angled structure right at the edge of a rooftop).
