Rooftop Relaxation | Outdoor Kitchen Gallery

Bay Area, California

Gates & Associates were hired to re-vamp the rooftop break area for a client. They turned this rooftop into a modern and sleek area for gathering, relaxing, and team building activities.

Rooftop before re-model began

When a San Francisco Bay business wanted to give their rooftop a modern vibe they called on help from the Gates & Associates landscape architecture firm. Together they turned an overgrown space into a vibrant outdoor room perfect for both entertaining clients and employee break time.

Outdoor Kitchen with 48" DCS Gas Grill

The focal point of this sleek renovation was an outdoor kitchen. After searching the website, with several support calls to Customer Service, the designers selected a DCS Built-In Gas Grill. The DCS met their needs with both form and function. Visually - the simple lines and gleaming steel accentuated the desired contemporary aesthetic. The ceramic radiant technology provided high performance functionality.

Corten Stainless Steel accented the Outdoor Kitchen

The grill was built-into a granite topped island. To create a rich contrast, a weathered CorTen steel was selected for the island sides and backsplash. Drought tolerant plants in a variety of shapes and sizes were planted on either side. The crisp green hues of the plants really make the wood on the island pop, giving the outdoor kitchen the very sleek and modern look that was desired.

A drought plant palette gave the space the added touch of color

The outdoor kitchen brought style and utility to the space and the clients were thrilled with the results. Employees are encouraged to grill out or simply relax with a good book on the chaise lounge chairs.
