Trigg Beach, Perth, Australia, Sophisticated Retro Bungalow
Sophisticated 1970’s at Trigg Beach, Perth, Australia
Congratulation to Mr. D Horrocks on the completion of 1 Peet Crescent, near Trigg Beach, Perth, Australia
This spacious 527 sqm block, in a quiet cul-de-sac, was a rundown, overgrown, partly collapsing, nicotine-stained 70’s bungalow. Now, with a lot of love and hard work, this site has been transformed into a sophisticated modern and trendy 2 bed /2 Bath rm that nestles in the hip surf culture of Scarborough and Trigg beach in Perth, Western Australia.
Retro and Earthy
With a breathtaking modern open plan feel, design features include, double glazing, WiFi Controlled Services, designer Italian mosaic and retro earthy colour scheme.
Mr. Horrocks managed to completely transform the rundown house while still maintaining that 1970s feel. The interior experience is trendy, yet sophisticated.
“The Shire were corrupt, cost me loads of money.”
Being mostly a refurbishment, Mr. Horrock did not think he needed to pay any consultants to produce planning drawings for him. He explained,
“The Shire made me get a local architect and building surveyor out to approve it. I had a Chartered Architect from the UK produce the original drawings, ‘pro bono’ so the local architect used that and just wrote on them… neither really did anything.”
Perth, Australia can be notorious for obsessive property culture, yet the strict planning laws can be mind bending. After COVID-19 hit the UK, Boris Johnson, Prime Minister of the UK announced a recent cut down in Planning laws in the UK to make building progress and approval swifter.

Mr. Horrocks says, 1 Peet Crescent in Trigg will be for sale by the end of the year.
