Zenith Perth Showroom
The original building was built in 1906 which has allowed for a stunning warehouse style fit-out. As a 3-level standalone character brick building many of the original architectural features that make this building so unique have been kept or highlighted throughout.
To complement and enhance the heritage architectural space is our own contemporary furniture arranged beautifully over the 3 levels – many of the products on display are both designed and manufactured in Australia.
