Multistory apartment blocks are gradually changing the architectural landscape of a number of Port Moresby suburbs. But houses built on posts with timber, corrugated iron roof with large verandahs and backyards still remain popular in the PNG capital.
The tropical weather of Port Moresby – where temperatures can average over 25°C annually – makes timber houses on posts with windows in all rooms coupled with large verandahs well ventilated. The building material ensures the house cools faster in the evenings and a big backyard gives the family space for outdoor activities.
Kit home companies have capitalized on the popularity of this design in recent years and rolled out products offering similar features to customers within and outside the PNG capital. New property developments in areas such as Taurama Valley, Kennedy Estate and Malolo Estate have some of these houses.
Suburbs such as Town have a variety of residential property types including multistory apartment blocks. But you will find more houses in Boroko, Korobosea, Gordon, Waigani and Gerehu where the bulk of working-class Papua New Guineans live.
There are houses on sale in most Port Moresby suburbs though the price is not the same for all suburbs and will be higher in areas such as Town, Boroko and Korobosea.
