The Rialto Terrace Apartments consist of a former 1920's clothing factory that has been modernised for the 21st century. This unique apartment situated on the fringe of the city is home to the Design Institute of Australia’s (DIA) National President Julie Hobbs. Julie’s apartment is a modern 2 bedroom 2 bathroom home set over two levels. Often referred to as “New York” style, factory conversions grew in popularity, particularly in inner city suburbs and Fremantle, during the mid-late 1990’s.  These conversions offer a distinctive quality of space and building fabric that bridges history with contemporary living. A visit to this apartment, thoughtfully decorated by Julie makes the journey up to Palmerston Street worth the effort.

The DIA applauds the efforts of Open House Perth.
