Cool Down this Summer with Big Ass Fans

Big Ass Fans recently sat down with Shaun Lockyer of Lockyer Architects and asked him one simple question: “What does summer feel like with Shaun Lockyer”. His answer: a seamless indoor/outdoor experience.



Striving for long-term sustainability, accommodating multi-generational living, Lockyer believes the importance of design is by achieving flexible, durable, universally appealing and adaptable spaces. Going beyond architectural decisions, creating a home to Lockyer is about focuses on the thoughtful integration of interior décor elements, landscaping and overall creating a balance between the indoor and outdoor spaces.

Seen in many of his designs, Lockyer is fond of using natural materials such as concrete and timber to create biophilic design in the new home builds. Bringing these organic materials into the interiors creates a connection to the outdoors. Lockyer emphasises the importance of light, air, flow and flexibility through new builds as well. He believes these important elements that make up the home tend to allow homeowners to feel a deeper connection with their home.

Annie House is a prime example of well-executed flow, air through seamless indoor/outdoor design. Big Ass Fans delivered its Haiku I series ceiling fans to the common areas of the home. Allowing people to move through the home and stay cool in the summer was important for a home design that blends it indoor and outdoor spaces.

Accompanying the ceiling fans, the choice of board-form concrete aids in providing a sense of coolness and freshness to the spaces and keeps the common areas cool in the humid summer months.

This active design decisions of creating a deeper connection to the natural world while aiding in ventilation demonstrates the professional expertise of Lockyer and his team.
