Glorified in architecture forever, the humble tiger prawn becomes a two-pronged deity for this Fitzroy North, Melbourne renovation.
WOWOWA Architecture is passionate about creating meaningful, contemporary, idea based civic spaces that are socially useful and publicly generous. Our projects champion context and demand that architecture have big ideas, which may be deeply personal, but are always cultural.
Our civic work advocates for architecture itself with an interest in how alternative methods of procurement can lead to the formation of unexpected relationships with a wider community. Teaching at Monash University and RMIT enables us to inspire others to see that architecture should have a sense of humour and the potential to shape cities.

Modernist Wonderland is a refurb to a yellow brick 60’s double storey gem for a Greek-Australian family – opa!!!!! It’s a colourful celebration and opening of the existing space, playful adaptation of original materials and embellishment of an optimistic era.
