Western Suburbs Weekly - - News -

FORM’S new homes in Clare­mont ei­ther side of the rail­way line will fea­ture in this week­end’s Open House Perth for the first time.

The Sta­tion Mas­ter’s House and the Good’s Shed, which house the FORM team and ex­hi­bi­tion space re­spec­tively, are among 40 new sites open to the pub­lic on Novem­ber 12 and 13 as part of the 5th Open House Perth, which gives the pub­lic un­prece­dented ac­cess to Perth’s most out­stand­ing ar­chi­tec­ture and de­sign spa­ces.

FORM project of­fi­cer Ju­liana do Valle said the Sta­tion Mas­ter’s House and Goods Shed were built in the late 19th cen­tury. Ms do Valle said the two build­ings ei­ther side of the rail- way line had a shared his­tory with one hous­ing the Sta­tion Mas­ter and the other a place to un­load goods, in­clud­ing an­i­mals dur­ing the Perth Royal Show, from trains.

She said Open House Perth would en­cour­age peo­ple to cross the rail­way line and con­sider the build­ings as part of one precinct.

The Goods Shed has had sev­eral uses, in­clud­ing a lawn mow­ing com­pany and black­smith and was in a state of dis­re­pair un­til FORM moved in ear­lier this year.
