Skyline Residence modern-exterior

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to Night Light
This is just so dang creative I am drawn to the image over and over again.
... And the front of the house gives an indication of what is going on: the second-story cantilever creates a carport but also a surface for watching films, something quite LA. This "drive-in theater" represents a hybrid condition: it's a house and a cinema. This further roots the house in a contemporary style rather than a modern one, since the latter preserved distinctions between various aspects of life (live-work-play, etc).
What better way to start an ideabook on Los Angeles architecture than a house that doubles as a place for watching movies.This second-floor projection doubles as a cover for a carport, putting the car on display as well. Yet neither display may not be able to compete with the panoramic view to the right, what Reyner Banham called the "Plains of Id" in his classic book, Los Angeles: The Architecture of Four Ecologies.
Beverly Glen, Los AngelesWalk Score: 34Car-DependentIt's no surprise that L.A. is a very car-dependent city, though many people may not know that its early, thorough streetcar network enabled the sprawl now served by freeways. These wide rights of way cut up the city, so even short trips require circuitous travel by car. That situation is also the result of the landscape, particularly the hills overlooking the city's sprawl. The appeal of this house in the Hollywood Hills is clear, but walks are probably limited to exercise.
Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to 11 Home Designs Driven by Carports
"Let's take the house out for a spin!"Not only does this home get raised to accommodate the car, but it becomes a car! Or a plane, or a ship or any of the other things the owner decides to feature.More:Great Garages: Parking, Reconsidered
Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to Go Wide With a Football-Watching Party Outside
Which brings me to this. Why not turn the entire house into one big screen? Those monster Jumbotrons aren't just for the folks at the stadiums. You can turn football night in America into a neighborhood block party.

I have always wanted to do this type of install but the scale can be a bit complicated to complete , you need a projection unit at the right space across from the wall you want to project on at and the right distance as well as height to frame it correctly. Difficult at best on most outside spaces.
