The original residence was built in 1870-1871. Locally quarried porcellanite stone was used in its construction, the lime for the mortar coming from coral. The Drawing room is the oldest known surviving European style structure in Darwin and was used as the core of a new building designed by John George Knight and completed in 1879. Government House was built to house Government Residents and later Administrators and is the home of the incumbent Administrator of the Northern Territory. Parliament House Opened in 1994, Parliament House is home to the Legislative Assembly of the Northern Territory and is a magnificent example of tropical architecture. The building features the parliamentary Chamber, an impressive Main Reception Hall, ministerial and opposition offices, the Department of Legislative Assembly, Parliamentary Counsel, media facilities, Speaker's Green, a cafe, a craft shop, and the Northern Territory Library. Supreme Court The Northern Territory Supreme Court was established on 30 May 1911 and was originally housed on the Esplanade in a building constructed in 1884 (now the Administrator's Office). Today the Supreme Court is situated in State Square adjacent to Parliament House and contains 11 courtrooms, Judges Chambers, Masters Chambers, a Library, Court Registry, Sheriffs Office, administrative offices and a coffee lounge.
