Architecture and design are exciting in Australia’s West, but this isn’t a new concept.

The late Iwan Iwanoff had been designing unique and inventive homes throughout Perth for over 25 years.

Recently, we had the pleasure of sponsoring acclaimed architectural photographer Jack Lovel’s exhibition ‘The Architecture of Iwan Iwanoff, Through the Lens of Jack Lovel’ — a celebration of Iwanoff’s impact to Perth’s architectural history.

Novas’ very own WA Business Development Manager, Ashley Walker, owns Iwanoff’s Featherby House in Karrinyup, and first met Jack over 2 years ago after receiving a letter from him detailing the project.

After growing up in an Iwanoff house, Jack was on a mission to document Iwanoff’s designs through a photography series aimed to highlight and celebrate this revolutionary architectural work.

“After speaking to Jack it was obvious how much this project meant to him, and to see how each house was photographed with meticulous detail shows his dedication and love for these houses,” says Ashley.

After somewhat accidentally finding and falling in love with Iwanoff’s Featherby House, Ash and his wife Danielle, spent over 3 years using state archives to restore their home to its original layout.

“Given there are only 31 left, being able to restore and preserve an important piece of Perth architectural heritage is something we have been very proud to do.”

Sponsoring this exhibition is a privilege for our team, and it was an honour to host over 150 influential Perth-based architects and designers from the likes of Woods Bagot, Cox Architecture, HASSELL Studio, Kerry Hill Architects, Hillam Architects and DKO Architecture, who are all dedicating themselves to enhancing all Perth has to offer.

“The opportunity to have so many designers in one place to take in the body of work that spanned over 25 years was really special,” notes Ashley.

Congratulations to Jack on what’s been a meticulous process, and an incredibly successful result.

We are thrilled not only to celebrate Perth’s architectural history, but to also be part of a new era of Western Australian architecture and development. We can’t wait to see what’s in store for the years to come in the West.
