Lighthouse Office

Oct 10, 2018

Category: Living

The lighthouse is a micro-building named aptly to reflect its lightweight prefabricated panels that are assembled with attention to minimize environmental impact. Additionally, the asymmetric windows and entryway of the small office space provide ample natural light in the daytime while projecting a warm and inviting glow after sundown. The unique structure rests on industrial casters made to support roll-off dumpsters, allowing for ample flexibility in the space this structure occupies. The designers of the Lighthouse ignored traditional building techniques and philosophies to create something totally new from the ground up — clearly seen from a door with no right angles to a skylight that marries age-old boatbuilding with details they borrowed from a car’s sunroof.

Los Angeles-based designers Kagan Taylor and Justin Rice hope to inspire similar structures into becoming “beacons for those searching for smaller sustainable buildings that embrace contemporary architectural design.”
