This 1922 heritage-listed Perth house is called ‘Kulahea’ and is the only remaining residence designed by George Temple-Poole, a British architect who designed Western Australian houses between 1885 and 1930. That all sounds very dignified, until you learn the name (which is its original one) is a word play on ‘cooler here’, describing its location close to Cottesloe Beach. A little colonial humour.So You Live in a… Federation House

This house in Perth, known as Kulahea – pronounced coola-here (get it?) – is also a revival of Tudor architecture. It is the only remaining residence designed by George Thomas Temple-Poole, a British architect well-known for his work in WA between 1885 and 1930. Built in 1922 for Charles North, who would be Mayor of Cottesloe in 1923, the heritage-listed property has recently been restored and updated. However, true to its historic character, the house still retains its Old English charm through the half-timbering, steep gabled roof and vertical windows. WHY WE LOVE IT: Tudor Revival and Old English architecture evoke a sense of romance and nostalgia for a simpler world. It directly expresses the influence of British architecture and, perhaps, the deep cultural ties between Britain and Australia at this time.
