“The Majlis” built by Perth custom homes builder Jumeirah Luxury Homes. The term is used to describe the “Heart of the Home” or the main room within a home, used for entertaining guests and family. The home, situated in one of Perth’s most sought after locations of City Beach, is a contemporary canvas fused with cultural elements. It details the extent to which Jumeirah will strive to provide our clients with sophisticated design and the finest built quality.
The home has taken its form from the natural contours and boundaries of the site. The blank canvas which once appeared as an unconquerable challenge, has given way to a design so individual and creative that it makes a personal viewing an absolute must.
From the street frontage, the home appears as single storey, but upon closer inspection, a stepped façade reveals two storeys of considered, detailed design that addresses both an aesthetic and functional purpose. Entry to the property is via the welcoming gatehouse and the senses are immediately aroused and tuned in for what is to come. Passing by the tiered landscaped gardens modelled on a ‘wadi’ or oasis river bed, the design has clearly evolved from the soul and this is more than just a home – it’s a sanctuary.
Arriving at the meticulously hand-carved Indian rosewood entry door, the grand foyer opens up to give a hint of what is to come with unique floor and wall finishes, soft furnishings and cultural artefacts blending seamlessly with the predominantly progressive palette. The heartbeat of the home is soon felt as the theatrical double storey void drops out over the living space, anchored by a Marmorino polished plaster wall, creating a spatial elegance that links all parts of the home. Yes, this is a family home in the true sense, colourful, vibrant, joyful and understated class.
Personalised elements include custom laser-cut screens patterned on an Indian sari design, a stunning take on the traditional concrete floors of an ancestral Indian village home, feature lighting to highlight surrounding space, and solid black walnut timber doors and joinery against the back drop of contemporary cabinets and feature tiling. This home is contemporary Australian, ancestral Indian and vibrant Bollywood all rolled into one.
Overall, The Majlis is a mesmerising family home that sits on a level of exclusivity one must experience to fully comprehend.
