Darwin New Home Design

    Darwin New Home Design Project

    This Darwin new home design aimed to give this home a contemporary feeling and create a low maintenance home, particularly for the elevated areas. By elevating the ground level by approximately 600mm we can enhance the view opportunities while still allowing a good connection to the garden.

    House Style and Garden | Darwin New Home Design

    Large glass windows and doors with a streamlined design using large eaves overhangs gives the home its contemporary look and feel.

    Our Darwin new home design client’s desired inclusions:

    1. A pool with lap pool section and wading area
    2. Space for a swing set and sandpit
    3. The northern side of the garden area and grassed area for children to play while being supervised from living areas of the home
    4. Landscaping to soften and protect the home from street traffic and give added privacy from the footpath.

    Ground Floor | Darwin New Home Design

    The main entry area ensures that when people come to the door, there is a security gate in position before the actual front door with a sheltered area outside and inside of this gate.

    A new double garage will be built. All service areas would be located on the southern side, while all living areas would be on the northern side. On the north-east end of the house will be the kitchen, playroom with lots of storage, possibly bench seating for storage, and doors to contain all the mess. The living room and dining room will be along the northern side, with the living area doubling as a music space.

    Directly out from the kitchen there will be a covered terrace or deck with wide steps to link into the garden. The deck is to have space for a BBQ, daybed and table. The kitchen will be galley style with space for a large refrigerator appliance cupboard, large pantry, upright stove and lots of drawers. Near the kitchen will be the laundry and utility area. The laundry is to have a top loader and dryer with potential access to a covered drying space.

    The ground floor bathroom is to include a separate shower and bath, single vanity and a separate WC as a powder room. The study could be located in the play room, however, is planned to be on the first floor of the home. A new guest bedroom will be located on the south-east corner close to the bathroom. The bedroom will have enough space to incorporate a small lounge and tea making facility.

    Depending on the final design, the stairwell to the first floor could be a feature stair. The living/dining area, including the music room, is to have seating for 8 people with a 2×3 seater and 2x single seats, an upright piano, bookshelves and a display area. The general theme will be timber floors with rugs. A built-in entertainment unit will also be included.

    First Floor | Darwin New Home Design

    The main bedroom is to be located in the north-east corner of the block so it can get maximum light and airflow and potential water views. Adjacent to this room on the south-east corner would be a walk in robe and ensuite, including separated toilet, large shower, one large basin, and a separate large bath. Adjacent to the bedroom, on the northern side of the house, would be a study with potential water views and a deck. This deck would also be linked to the main bedroom. Solid timber framed bi-folds will be used to separate the study from the bedroom.

    The study is to have a desk, cupboard and shelving for ring binders, archive box storage, display space, one lounge chair, and access to the balcony. Everything is to be built in with a panelled look. On the remainder of the northern side would be an entertainment/TV room, again with a small balcony on the western end to capture any view opportunities.

    The first floor would also have another two bedrooms with the main bathroom between these rooms. A utility room would also be on this level. Enough space would be incorporated in the main bedroom robe to have an ironing board, or ironing station erected all the time.

    Darwin History and Architecture

    Darwin is the capital of the Northern Territory. In 1974 Cyclone Tracy wiped out 70% of the buildings in Darwin, including the beautiful old stone structures. As a result of the devastation, Darwin was rebuilt with new materials and is considered more modern then many other capital cities in Australia.
