This sheltered outdoor living room is just off the deck of a midcentury house in the Hollywood Hills. The horizontal wood fencing, 1-by-2 planks of Mangaris (a dark, eco-friendly hardwood also known as red balau) with 3⁄4-inch spaces in between, creates a privacy screen from neighbors while preserving the property's sense of openness.
