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.
