The Project
WOWOWA Hermon is an alteration to one of Hawthorn’s most beautiful red brick Federation homes. The brief was to manipulate a prior mock renovation, provide suitable, open living spaces and land a contemporary visual language as counterpoint to the decorative manor. A generous main bedroom was created with WIR and ensuite, The playful bathroom colours, lilac, blue and green, supply a fresh colour injection and nod to the geometric front door stained glass. The kitchen is hard-working, and split into two spaces. This project is the perfect balance of both homage and embellishment, restraint and playfulness.
