Although we love old elevated Darwin houses, it was out with the old and in with the new! We removed a C19 house to make way for this incredible tropical design in the leafy green suburb of Fannie Bay, walking distance to the markets and the beach.
The Hibiscus house was designed for a professional couple and their family who, like us, are passionate about tropical houses suited to our Territory climate.
The “U” shaped floor plan was created to act as a buffer to the street and a provides a protected and central meeting point for the family to relax and enjoy the great outdoor lifestyle that Darwin has to offer. The large entertaining space complete with a built in bar and outdoor-kitchen connects directly to a pool and grassed area.
Two wings connect to the living space, one being a guest wing with its own bathroom and tv space, the opposite wing houses the master bedroom, bathrooms and kids bedrooms.
A skillion roof has been cleverly designed by floating over the lower roof structures to allow hot air to escape from the outdoor space, with large eaves for rain protection. Not only does this cool the entertaining space but creates an interesting roof line from the street. Large modern feature awnings on the east and west help protect the walls from morning and afternoon sun.
