Shadow House

Jack Lovel
Jack Lovel is an architectural photographer based in Melbourne but often found working abroad. His editorial work often features in global publications like Dwell, Vogue Living and Habitus. Alongside his freelance practice, since 2016 Jack has been documenting Iwan Iwannoff’s architectural legacy in Western Australia, culminating in the release of his first book Catching Light. This work was inspired by the Iwanoff-designed Jordanoff house that Jack grew up in.

The Project
The sublime mix of new and old that is Shadow House celebrates its honest material palette and pays homage to its surroundings. Located in the inner city neighbourhood of Bayswater, the project embraces its heritage while providing a contemporary home for its young inhabitants.


Architect/Designer of the project: Craig Nener, Grotto Studio
