Modern architecture: the most amazing place to play with outdoor lighting. Many overscale outdoor fixtures can actually add to the architectural personality of the home from both close up and far away. For covered spaces, you can never go wrong with a vinyl Nelson saucer pendant.
The overlook in the top-left corner is one of many outdoor spaces integrated into this Hillside House. There are inset balconies, terraces, and even semi-outdoor rooms (the stacked rooms in the photo's middle). The projecting balcony is an extension of a roof terrace. Note how a notch in the solid guardrail one floor below mimics this overlook.
In a language of thinness, modulation, and precise structure, wood is used here to delineate the wall as a screening device. By varying the interval of spacing members, solidity transforms into layered openness like a large, fixed Venetian blind.
