Jiwkoff House, Iwan Iwanoff

This is the Jiwkoff House, designed by Iwan Iwanoff in 1971. Not exactly a fantastic stand alone project, but interesting in the scheme of things. The roof is the main attraction here, with a really deep front fascia that projects out and creates a floating illusion, supported by thin posts set apart from the main volume. Over time it has gone extremely wonky so it looks rather odd!  The roof  hovers over a square plan, with a solid rock wall front and centre offset with a  nice entry/carport cut out. Very similiar to the house in Meenaar Crescent. Nice little job.

    I used to work in a community group home almost across the road from this little Modernist gem: though it looked thoroughly out of place in the street it’s in, I always considered it to be the finest home in that street! Nice work indeed 🙂
