With a large 1012 square metre block as a blank canvas located amidst an eclectic gallery of old and new housing stock in one of Perth’s prestigious Western suburbs, WA Custom home builder Jumeirah Luxury Homes has sculpted a contemporary yet sophisticated fusion of angled architecture, abundant natural light and adaptable space.
As a boutique builder, Jumeirah Luxury Homes exclusively manages a select number of clients each year in order to provide a rare level of service and accessibility with the central focus being the client’ vision for their new home.
The fundamental design intent for the impressive residence was to create a contemporary liveable family home with provisions for separate children’s and parent’s zones in addition to the main family. An important client requirement was to create light and open living spaces that could access the outdoor deck areas from more than one direction – establishing and emphasising an uninterrupted flow between the inside and outside and taking advantage of a northern exposure for the spacious living and entertaining spaces.
The individual scallion roofed forms reflect the distinct internal zoning and provide for soaring, airy internal spaces with high levels of natural light. The sophistication and indoor/outdoor interaction of the home is created, in part, by the materials selection, including the twin sided solid granite fieldstone fireplace and water feature walls, the Pacific Teak decking which defines the generous alfresco areas overlooking the inviting 25m lap pool (complete with an automatic cover.) Gas heating, an in-floor cleaning system and a fully integrated C-Bus home Automation System offer the convenience of modern technology, while Perak Silver Pearl stone tiling to selected internal and external areas, the honeyed tones of East Coast Blackbutt solid timber flooring and the extensive hard and soft landscaping provide the finished touches to a home designer that is at once welcoming and family-orientated whilst being a showcase of architectural creativity and superbly executed craftsmanship – a particularly successful collaboration between the design team at Hofman & Brown and the Jumeirah Luxury Homes construction and management tea.
