The Fifth Room has also won contracts for projects at three
primary schools under the State Government’s Percent for Art
Scheme. Rob will partner with artist Jahn Rees, who works with
concrete, to create sculptural pieces with seating around them.
Jahn is no stranger to the couple. After renting the Beaconsfield
workshop for three years, last year Rob and Tanya bought it in

not far from Fremantle, meant they found themselves in a big
community of artists, including Jahn, which was a familiar
environ ment for the couple and one that offers collaboration potential.
“It’s a great network of people that can all offer their talents. It’s
a really strong community and everyone knows everybody, so it’s a
real networking of talents and crafts and trades,” Tanya says. “It’s
why we’ve been able to grow... our business has blossomed.” An apt
description, considering their pieces are inspired by the wonderful
geometry inherent in our amazing native flowers. I
