The Light House is a new bespoke multi-residential building located in Hawthorn. The building is currently in construction. Its structural levels are now in place.
Located in the heart of the Hawthorn Village, the front of the building can be seen prominantly from the platform of the adjacent trainline.
The design of the building is a slim profile of raw concrete, etched along the exterior to create varition across the surfaces. The two facades of the building are characterised by fine grids of glass blockwork, ultimately forming a column of vertical illumination. This prominent element is flanked by a deep recess on each level, with fine steel rail details.
The use of glass blocks creates an incredible play of light internally whist providing screening for the individual residences. The effect is already evident on the construction site.
