Menora's Mosaic: From Green Streets to Architectural Feats

Garden Designs Meet Architectural Diversity

In the heart of Western Australia lies Menora, a suburb thoughtfully designed on the ideals of the garden suburb concept. This planning ensures that its streets bloom with greenery and every home is but a short walk away from tranquil parks. The development of Menora spanned over several years, bestowing upon it a mosaic of architectural styles—be it Californian bungalows, art-deco marvels, or international-style residences. These homes, primarily single detached entities built with brick, stand on spacious lots, lending the area a distinguished residential character.

But Menora isn’t just about homes. The suburb hums with life thanks to its commercial strip on Walcott Street, satisfying the retail needs of its residents. It boasts a plethora of public open spaces and cozy pocket parks, with Alexander Park even featuring a tennis centre. The community is enriched by establishments like Saint Paul’s Primary School and a significant Jewish synagogue on Plantation Street, making Menora a blend of culture, heritage, and modernity.

Deep Dive

Menora's Historical Roots

Menora, once viewed as part of Mount Lawley, has an intriguing origin story that dates back to 1840 when the land was first granted to Charles Bourne. Subdivision only began a century later in the 1940s, and it wasn’t until 1954 that the name “Menora” was adopted, inspired by the Menora Picture Theatre on Walcott Street. A notable emblem of Menora’s architectural charm is a Federation Bungalow-style dwelling on Walcott Street, set distinctively behind a limestone wall and timber fence, its aesthetic value enriching the suburb’s historic streetscape.
