Hope by vittinoAshe
We had the pleasure of chatting with Katherine Ashe and Marco Vittino of award winning architectural studio vittinoAshe about their Hope project; the stunning extension and renovation of an original 1900’s workers cottage in the popular Hope Street and Orange Avenue dogleg. We talk inspiration, challenges, triumphs and what makes this project so special.
Designed by iconic architect and Bulgarian born Iwan Iwanoff, Featherby House, built circa 1971, is a stunning example of his brutalist style characterised by concrete blocks and distinct rectilinear form.
We spoke to current custodians Ashley and Danielle Walker about their experience owning and restoring such a unique piece of West Australian architectural history.
