Erwin Hawawinata is the king of classic home designs. His projects span high-end residential areas in Jakarta, from Pantai Indah Kapuk, Menteng, Simprug to Kebayoran area. Far away from his office address in Jakarta, he has also designed luxury homes in Surabaya, Medan, Kuala Lumpur, and several other cities within the Southeast Asia region.
Erwin established his firm Hawawinata N Associates, in which he designed many residences, private offices and galleries for Indonesian crème de la crème. Through classical designs, he exhibits symmetrical architecture and thoughtful details throughout spacious living spaces. Having done numerous designs, the humble architect still sharpens his skills in making freehand drawings, which are as detailed as his completed works.
Erwin is one of only a few Indonesian architects to be shortlisted as the finalists of iDOGI Award, an annual international competition of luxury interior designers organised by the Venice-based iDOGI® group.
