Popularly known as the Space Invader House, Florence Street was part of our very first event all the way back in 2012. It’s been incredible to see how the work by Klopper Davis Architect’s has evolved over the year, but as part of our very first event this one will always have a special place in my heart.

Confession time… I never had a chance to see it. I was so busy in the early days I hardly got to see our great spaces and this is one of those amazing fish that got away. One of the things that is so special about this particular project is its urban setting and tight footprint. Not only is it a great example of an inner-city family house that has room for everything including a backyard, trampoline and a pool but its a testament to the enduring talent of Klopper Davis Architects who have managed to be involved in every year of Open House Perth.
