This phenomenal home pushes architectural boundaries to result in
a design that combines contemporary lines and a unique layout.
Echelon is proud to present its latest luxury
home in Salter Point – Djarlgarro, coming from
the Nyoongar words ‘Djarlgarro Beeliar’, meaning
The home takes in breathtaking, elevated
180-degree views of the Canning River
from Rossmoyne, Shelley Foreshore and
Salter Point, across to the wetlands of Bodkin
Park and Clontarf.
The concept design was a collaboration between
the builders Adam Harry (Echelon Group) and
Steeg Banham of Banham Architects.
Architecturally designed to suit a challenging
block with significant design constraints relating
to size, height, overlook and shading, the
home boasts a striking facade with a high-end
Cross ventilation and an extensive use of glazing,
along with many other sustainable features, have
secured this home a 6-star Greenstar rating.
Floor-to-ceiling structural glazing and windows
(more than 3m tall) were achieved despite height
restrictions, and 7m-wide, floor-to-ceiling
stackable sliding doors completely open the
living area to the pool below.
Further enhancing this awe-inspiring area
is the 9m cantilevered, suspended slab that seems
to float over the pool.
The floorplan has an ‘upside-down’ design,
with the kitchen, living, master, study, laundry,
and theatre areas on same level as the garage. All
major rooms, including the bedrooms and living
areas, have spectacular river views, with the master
bedroom looking more like a five-star hotel suite.
Despite the home’s modern contemporary
style, the bedrooms still have a warm, aesthetic
ambience to them, juxtaposing the harder lines
of the living areas.
Taking just eight months to complete this
two-storey, multi-million dollar home sets a new
standard for building in Perth, proving time is
equally important as quality and cost.
