Breathing Building Set to Rise in Kangaroo Point

Amidst the increasing number of concrete buildings in Brisbane will rise a residential building that espouses the idea of a breathing building.

The proposed project called Jardino will rise on Hamilton Street in Kangaroo Point and promises to be an iconic green tower in the city. The building is in line with Brisbane government’s “Building’s That Breathe” design guideline, which calls for provision of lush landscaping, shade and comfort in new buildings that will be built in the city.

Jardino is a project proposed by Hamilton Street Enterprises and designed by Bureau Proberts. The architects described the towering garden as a new take of the backyard garden as residents will have a sort of green space just outside their homes.

According to the submitted proposal, the building will have 19 storeys and will offer views of the central business district, the Brisbane River and other notable landmarks such as the Story Bridge and Kangaroo Point Cliffs.

Around the building will be flowering plants along stainless steel screening. A rainwater tank on the rooftop will be the source for the centralised watering system for the plants.
