Ten Residence

The design intent for this modest home and garden, located on a tree-lined street in Culver City, was to create a family-friendly, versatile, sustainable outdoor environment that grew with the rapidly changing needs of the owners, their three children and their close-knit community. This became the site of the "Neighborhood Film Festival" where family and friends could settle into the oversized sofa, warm themselves by the outdoor firepit/coffee table, and enjoy a movie under the stars.

Thanks! The fence and gate design is horizontal bands of redwood accentuated with linear lexan windows. For more images you can visit: http://www.sunset.com/garden/landscaping-design/backyard-movie-00418000082395/

love the fire pit would have liked it more if it had been off centered - ie more room in the seating area for glasses

Luna Bazaar (and others) carries lanterns like these for under $20. Each lantern can be lit with its own battery powered led (about $5). That's a good thing for people like me whose outdoor outlets are all being used. There are paper lanterns for indoor use and nylon lanterns for outdoor use. I have hung paper ones indoors directly in front of a covered window, and after a couple of years the colors are very faded, so I'm taking them down. However, I am considering the nylon lanterns for my patio and around the pool, strung on wire much like is done here. While I would love to use some beautiful colors (chartreuse and fuschia!) I think I will stick with the white lanterns. The TX sun is fierce, and the white looks great in MTLA's patio.

Please read the updated project description. However, to answer your question directly -- MTLA mounted a large retractable movie screen to the side of the garage.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Samantha Schoech added this to 7 Ways to Create a Gorgeous Outdoor Room
These hanging lanterns look festive and help create a sense of a room in this mostly open area.
Sara Rivka Dahan added this to Make Things Magical With Paper Lanterns
This outdoor seating area in a Culver City, California, home has been brought to life with round lanterns in a variety of sizes. The white is fresh and modern, and it's no surprise that this space is a neighborhood gathering spot. I'm quite certain that the effect after dark isn't all that different from the bobbing fishing boat lights that first inspired Noguchi.
