Sun sculpting | Foyn-Johanson House by Harrison & White Architects

17 March, 2010

PROJECT Foyn-Johanson House
LOCATION Northcote, VIC, Australia
DESIGN Harrison & White Architects
YEAR 2010

In response to a brief requiring maximum sunlight for a backyard garden and outdoor living area, architects Harrison & White sculpted the planned extension to this existing weatherboard house in Melbourne’s northern suburbs. The process involved the subtraction of precise sections according to digital modelling of the sun’s rays throughout the day. Harrison & White, based in Melbourne, specialise in innovative applications of sustainable design.
