Lantern House proves that good things do come in small packages. Elegant and efficient, the house is organized in three parallel bands of space: public, service and private. A great room for family gathering occupies the public band which opens through oversized sliding glass doors to porches at the front and back. good things do come in small packagesThis space is served along one side by a continuous wall of cabinets for both closed storage and open display. Expanded polycarbonate cladding admits a diffuse light through areas of open shelving in this wall. The service zone, with the kitchen at its center, functions as both a hinge and a buffer between the public and private spaces. Book-ended by two bathrooms, this central band is top lit by three lanterns that also aid in the natural cooling of the house. The private band accommodates one large master bedroom and two smaller bedrooms with built in storage and work areas. The Lantern House’s simple yet sophisticated plan belies its modest square footage, offering an airy public room for entertaining, ample storage, and quiet spaces for personal retreat.
