Read about how 10 apartments were styled to suit different aesthetics. From art to furnishings, see how the spaces come to life.

10 apartments, 10 unique looks. Perth’s Claremont by Mirvac has been customised to suit every style.

Large windows, an abundance of natural light and fresh neutral colour schemes provided the perfect starting point when Mirvac joined forces with Open House Perth to celebrate local architecture, design and interiors.

As part of Open House Perth, 10 individual apartments at Claremont by Mirvac were styled and furnished by some of Australia’s leading designers and artists to showcase their unique style.

Mirvac’s collaborative partners for the initiative included Henri Living, Ultimo, Coco Republic, Openspace and Mobilia, plus nationally renowned designer Anna Flanders. The apartments also featured artwork from acclaimed local artists Jordy Hewitt, Elle Campbell, Jarrad Seng, Matt Hayes, mkticks, Sarah May and Ian de Souza.

The Open House initiative began in London in 1992 as a small not-for-profit organisation founded by a number of architects hoping to foster a greater understanding of architecture outside of the profession. It now features internationally as part of the Open House Worldwide organisation, in cities including New York, London, Dublin, Jerusalem, Barcelona, Chicago, Rome, Buenos Aires, Vienna, Athens, Prague, Madrid, Milan, Zurich, Stockholm, Atlanta and Mexico City.

Open House Perth provides the public rare behind-the-scenes access to explore hundreds of Perth’s best structures, ranging from homes, corporate buildings and skyscrapers, rooftops, heritage spaces and unique restricted areas. The public get the chance to see them all one weekend a year.

More than 1,000 visitors came through Claremont by Mirvac during the weekend, giving them an opportunity to see a range of living options, from one-bedroom apartments to three-bedroom terraces homes.

The apartments at Claremont by Mirvac have been meticulously designed and planned by Mirvac’s award-winning in-house architect and interior design team. With a warm and contemporary style, and located between the city and the sea, the development showcases the very best of western suburbs living.

Paige Walker, Mirvac’s General Manager for Residential Development WA, says, “At Mirvac, our focus has always been on exceptional design – creating spaces for people to live in that are beautiful, functional and stand the test of time.”

“Our design focus aligns closely with the purpose of Open House and the event was a wonderful opportunity to welcome the public to Claremont by Mirvac so that they could see the finished product and experience the quality first-hand.”
