Lantern House, Melbourne, Australia

Inspiring single family house located in Melbourne, Australia, redesigned and extended in 2019 by Timmins + Whyte Architects.

Lantern house extension is passively cooled in summer with the use of openable skylights, fans and louvered windows on the ground floor. The extension has been designed to play with light, it allows the space to bathe in it, or retreat from it through the remotely controlled blinds on the upper level expanses of glass. The project incorporates a large water bladder under the front verandah to water the gardens and solar panels on the roof for energy.

A shell has been formed with Matte white Colorbond cladding on a lightweight timber structure to protect the honey coloured local timber (Tasmanian oak) interior linings, windows and doors from the weather.

The house is a series of choreographed spaces with views to the outside from every angle. There is a sense of calm, like being at a day spa. It feels soft, it feels light and unfussy. The main living and kitchen now feel part of the whole site, and will evolve and change with seasons as the garden grows.⠀
