Developer Muil Pty Ltd has submitted a development application for a new 19-story residential tower located at 12 Hamilton Street, Kangaroo Point. The building which is known as Jardino – derived from the French word jardin, meaning garden – consists of 17 full-floor three-bedroom apartments. Its design has extracted a significant amount of concepts and ideas from the Brisbane City Council’s new subtropical design guide.
Created by Brisbane-based architectural firm Bureau Proberts, the tower features a multi-layered garden façade with night time lighting system as well as a distinctive rotating design as the building rises above the tree line.
Building amenities include a podium level pool, sun lounges, and a rooftop terrace with an outdoor kitchen and sloped grass picnic lawn. A centralized irrigation system will utilize rainfall water stored in a tank on the roof top to water the green façade without the intervention of the occupiers.
Jardino joins a small cluster of high-end residential buildings along this portion of Kangaroo Point, with Bureau Proberts-designed Walan currently under-construction and JGL Properties’ 11 Thornton Street recently proposed.
