“The Majlis” is a term is used to describe the “Heart of the Home” or the main room within a home, used for entertaining guests and family. It is the coming together of contemporary design with sophisticated cultural tones.

From the street frontage, The Majlis 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.
