The Foyn-Johanson House is a 2009 project by Harrison and White Architects. This addition to an existing weatherboard house in Northcote, Melbourne, Australia uses the path of the sun, along with planning constraints, to create a subtracted barn-like form. Harrison and White corrected the initial orientation of the house by using a subtracted sun path which allows the rear outdoor living area and garden to receive direct sunlight. The side walling is treated like a roof, and the rear facade is a screen system that is used for used for sunshading, balustrading and view screening. The facade is also made of a sustainable artificial timber.
