Tom Lane, grandson of Oroton fashion empire founder, has moved into the Byron Bay township with wife, Emma. 

They've secured a $3.25 million, white-box style residence that draws contemporary architectural comparisons with their recently sold $3.5 million hinterland home, Amilika. 

The Manly-based Lane family originally went to Byron Bay in search of a big old Queenslander as their holiday home and are now partners in the organic farming and tourist venture known as The Farm. I spotted he has number plates with the FARM.

The home, architecturally inspired by Isay Weinfeld, sits on 1000 sqm in the old town precinct. It was marketed as having a climate controlled solar chimney.
