Light Cannon House

Posted on Thu, 8 May 2014 by midcenturyjo

Light filled alterations and addition to an old house in Annandale, Sydney. As is so often the case in the older suburbs of Sydney, houses sit cheek by jowl on zero boundary lines or are part of a terrace. No chance of light penetrating from sides shared with neighbours. So how to draw light into otherwise narrow, dark spaces? Welcome to the Light Cannon House by Carter Williamson Architects. Light is funnelled into the white, almost industrial interiors by means of sculptural roof towers and a central courtyard.

I really did need the model! Interesting lack of space in the black bathroom, with not a clue where it exists inside the house, but I do love high ceilings.

Another beautiful narrow home.

Oregonbird – I know the owners and have seen their lovely house. The (guest) bathroom is quite small as it's located under their stairs but it's very functional and a gothic delight. Their main bathroom is located upstairs.
