The Building history is that it was built by D & J Fowler Ltd around 1903 as a warehouse dry goods and spice store.
In the early 1980’s West Australian award winning architect Ralph Drexel and his wife Heather, saw the building was for sale, fell in love with it, and purchased it that week. It was leased to Praxis, a performance arts center, gallery and studio for artists. Later it was partly leased it to Deckchair Theatre.
In the early 2000 Ralph and Heather Drexel transformed the property into 18 warehouse apartments and 5/33 Pakenham Street became their families Fremantle weekend home. They spent many weekends here for the last 18 years.
