Lantern and Clerestory Roofs

Lantern and Clerestory Heritage Roofs

Lantern and clerestory roofs are a feature in many older industrial buildings in Sydney.  These types of roofs are constructed with a high section of vertical windows between the main roof and the top of the roof. The benefits of this design are much improved natural light and ventilation. These types of roofs are sometimes configured in a Saw Tooth roof pattern. Modern roofs of this type are sometimes used as an element of passive solar design to heat and cool buildings.

Murphy’s have replaced Lantern, Clerestory and Saw Tooth type heritage roofs at many sites including White Bay Power Station and The Bakehouse Quarter. If you look around the Sydney landscape you will notice the distinctive shape of Lantern, Clerestory and Saw Tooth roofs.
