A Modernist Mansion Fit For A ‘Contemporary Goddess’
Thanks to our good friends at Modernist Australia, we discovered the spectacular Golowin House (1959) by Iwan Iwanoff in Mount Lawley, Western Australia earlier this year – what a beauty!
Cherished and restored by passionate custodians who held onto it for the last 3 decades, the Golowin House was sold to new owners earlier this year. Whilst it was on the market, we were lucky to get this scoop!
The residence was a commission for Iwanoff’s preferred builder, the Russian-Jewish family, Golowin Builders, who carried out the construction in the best tradition of astonishing, old-world craftsmanship leaving not a crumble or crack to be seen over 60 years later!
As modern Australia’s Trish Callaghan says – ‘how can one walk up that split level entry, in party best, on a balmy Perth evening and not feel like a contemporary goddess?!’
