Tropical Living with a Contemporary FlareDesigned by Melbourne's Carr Design (IDEA Australian Design Practice of the Year), this captivating residence received high commendations from the Royal Australian Institute of Architects and epitomises contemporary elegance. Nestled on prestigious Flagstaff Hill, Port Douglas, this stunning home is surrounded by a tropical landscape, with views to the coastal hinterland and Daintree National Park. The location makes shopping, restaurants and the beach just a short stroll away while also providing panoramic views.
With exposed steel structure and vast areas of glass, softened by the extensive use of timber cladding, screens and internal finishes, this house sits openly and unobtrusively in partnership with the raw tropical landscape, blurring the boundaries between outside and in.
As it steps down Flagstaff Hill, a boundary of vegetation contains the space, while an exposed, blade-like central spine wall ensures your complete privacy. This hand 'scored' concrete rendered wall brings its rough exterior finish within, to create a strikingly contrasting internal experience.
This resort-inspired holiday house allows an open and private encounter with the environment, with 180-degree views of the vastness of Tropical North Queensland while keeping interaction with natural vegetation and wildlife within arm's reach.
With bedrooms and bathrooms located on each of the three levels, this four bedroom house creates a perfect retreat for the growing family or two / three couples. The heated 'wet edge' pool, private courtyard, bedrooms and bathrooms all merge together with the surrounding landscape, allowing you to indulge in all that the tropics has to offer.
