This is Iwan Iwanoffs own house done in 1966 in Floreat, and its killer. The concrete blocks this time are mixed with concrete parts cast from sewing machine bits, for really wild experimental patterning. Also with the ingenious ventialtion system of having a slit at the base of the floor, with a wooden slat in front, which you can slide out, to let breezes in, from the bottom, to cool the room. really really good. Also i like how its still wildly experimental, but still fits into a more reserved overall package, a rectangular box. Wicked sticks.
