Late last year I was invited to be part of an event. The central question, “How does the built form contribute to liveable communities?” got me thinking about our city and how liveable Perth is. For those who have travelled afar, we arrive back home and realise not much has changed. You can bet the ageless Susannah Carr and Rick Ardon will be on a billboard [...]

December 12th, 2017|Community, Founders Thoughts, Hosts, Trust|

Like many Perth suburbians, I bought into the lifestyle of a large block, 10 minutes off the freeway in the fast-growing southern suburb of Harrisdale/Piara waters. We parted ways with over half a million dollars, choosing a local Perth project builder to complete our mini-mansion; 4 bedrooms, study, family, 2.5 bath, double garage, stone benchtops, wood flooring, upgraded tapware, and of course the front & backyard [...]

Like many Perth kids, as soon as I was old enough to get a passport and pay for a plane ticket, I was outta here! And like most Aussies I went to Bali.  I then saved my pennies and made the pilgrimage to London. I then backpacked, went back to London. Which was followed up with more backpacking before hitting up London a third time. By [...]
