ABOUT

At WOWOWA, we seek JOY and HOPE in every project. Our practice is committed to creating colourful, contemporary, ideas-driven spaces that reset the boundaries of environmental innovation and have a sense of humour – livability & lovability.

Our reach is both residential and public in scale, encompassing homes, interiors, schools, and community spaces. All with yummy resi DNA.

Our work is a testament to the MOMENT and to MEMORY, it looks to the past to keep things fresh – a mixture of highbrow architectural references and the nostalgia of home-grown narrative, and it explores and references the NOW – through the life of the client – their fancies and foibles, their hopes and happiness – what is quintessential to them.

AND when we speak of MEMORY or even SUSTAINABILITY, when we mean more than adaptive reuse of architectural device or materiality or even a homage to style – it is a reimagining and playful restructure of the known elements – we like to call it story-in-place.

We are BCorps Certified x
