Lyndon Goode Architects were shortlisted at the Sunday Times British Home Awards for the ‘Best Housing Project’ following their stunning architectural design of Lanterna Building.

LGA describes Lanterna Building as “A daring scheme which pays homage to the area’s industrial past and its contemporary role as home to one of Europe’s largest creative communities. Lanterna is a dramatic, free-standing building that echoes the high quality industrial architecture on Fish Island in both structure and make-up, while a matt black precast concrete with herringbone inlay gives a modern, gritty feel that resonates with the urban context. The Trampery described the ground floor and its five metre-high ceiling as a “breath-taking space” and the patterned precast concrete façade as “unique … gorgeous, a bit like molten lava”.

Project Director Simon Goode said:

“During the concept design stage our visits yielded inspiration from the vibrant graffiti that dominates the streetscape. We created a dramatic herringbone-pattern design that wraps around the frame of the building, weaving in and out of reveals. The pattern continues across the balcony balustrades in a scaled-up format, creating a visual impact that befits Lanterna’s status as gateway to Fish Island Village and as the backdrop to Lofthouse Square. As well as enhancing the physical character of the area, the development will support the numerous artists, designers and creative industry start-ups based in Fish Island”.

A fantastic accolade for Fish Island Village and a huge congratulations to Lyndon Goode Architects for their success.
