Our Top Picks from Open House Perth 2018

Our Top Picks from Open House Perth 2018

Whew! What an amazing Perth weekend! The weather is finally starting to pick up and at the perfect time. This past weekend we were finally able to visit some of the incredible homes featured in this year’s Open House Perth.

Open House Perth first started in 2011 and is a showcase of some of Western Australia’s best talent, from designers, to decorators, to landscapers like us!

In fact this year, Premier Constructed’s owner Tom was reached out to, to offer some paving installation advice at one of the Open House Perth destinations. The results were unreal, so we wanted to share some photos and thoughts about our two favourites.


DUKE STREET. 136A Duke Street, Scarborough, 6019

Landscape designer Ascher Smith showcased her design capabilities with their very own home, as they renovated it from the ground up. Her interior and exterior styling was jaw dropping, she is so incredibly clever and puts so much thought and effort into the smallest of details. All of this of course was made possible by her husband, Dylan’s, incredible hard work, expertise, and hands on approach.

They are selling their house via auction in December so be sure to check it out.


ABBETTHAUS. 58 Trethowan Lane, Scarborough, 6019

This home was our favourite that we visited. It really took our breath away! It is only the second certified Passive House in WA, and combined its solar passive design with timber framing, high levels of insulation, double glazing and an airtight building envelope.

To see such innovation, efficiency, and environmental awareness in design was truly inspiring.

Perhaps another reason this house was our favourite was because Premier Constructed was consulted on some of the landscaping work done! Tom gave technical advice to the team on the crazy paving installation. It was an honour to be involved, and being an expert in this field- #1 crazy paving installer in Perth- Tom loved seeing the final results.

Be sure to check out some of the creatives that made this home come to life!

Did you manage to visit any of the Open House Perth destinations over the weekend? Drop a comment on our latest Instagram post letting us know which home you visited was your favourite and why.

We would finally just like to congratulate all those involved on the projects we were lucky enough to visit. The elite teams of professionals pulled together, creating awe-inspiring displays of home and landscaping design. Pictures really don’t do these projects justice as they were even more incredible in person.

This weekend has left us so excited and inspired for all the work we have coming up; in particular, the launching of Perth’s most sophisticated decorative concrete business. Watch THEIR space.
