UPDATE: OCTOBER 2010 - the bottom of this post has links to over thirty Iwan Iwanoff projects, all featured here!
Frank Lloyd Wright meets Mike Brady. Marsala House, 1977, Dianella. Spectacular. This, like many others here, is world class. If Marsala was in LA, there would be 30 years of magazine articles on it by now.
No matter which beach I'm heading to, it always involves passing this masterpiece. Paganin House, 1965, Floreat.
Karrinyup Shopping Center is perhaps the worst place in Perth. Just around the corner, is one of Perth's finest. Featherby House, 1970.
City Beach has at several Iwanoff's. The Roberts House, 1967, has had a garage addition added recently.
Another City Beach cinder block example. Murphy House, 1970. Currently, the original owners are living in this amazing abode, and report that apart from a small alteration, the house is completely original. Oh, and 1995 kitchen fire meant that a new kitchen was installed.
Back to Dianella - Kessel House, 1975.
Still in Iwanella (1969)...
The 1969 Burszyten House, located in Iwanella.
The Iwanoff House, his former residence, 1966, Floreat. Detailed letter-box articulation is a recurring theme.
Two Iwanoff "town houses" metres from the beach in Cottesloe. In places, age is getting the best of them. Time for some repairs at the Glencser Duplex...
There are a few more houses I know of, the Mount Lawley and Coolbinia examples are nearby, so I will get them up here soon. Northam Town Council is possibly the most brutal looking building in all of Western Australia. I have a couple of other commercial premises to add as well. Some interior shots, and some drawings could also be on the cards. Keep checking back, or subscribe to this blog (is that even possible? ...sounds good though...)
Just like the Pet Shop Boys, Huey Lewis and the News, and Lionel Richie, Iwan Iwanoff died in 1986.
