Pellicano has submitted a development application for a boutique eight storey residential building located at 21 Duke Street, Kangaroo Point.
Designed by DBI Architecture, the project comprises of 86 apartments and short term accommodation dwellings as well as communal rooftop facilities.
Known as ‘Story House’ in the development application, the project is situated three houses away from the Gabba Stadium on the Vulture Street side.
According to DBI Architecture, significant landscape planting is proposed to be integrated into the building design, as well as deep planting areas on the ground floor, enhancing the public realm and reducing the bulk and scale of the development.
“The design includes warm, natural tones, textures and finishes to the building ‘base’, providing a more natural feel to the public realm and recollection of material tones historically in the area.
“The top section of the building responds to the current trends of the developing area, with a play on textured off white and grey finishes to break down the vertical layering of the building while emphasizing the sculptural articulation of the balcony form” – DBI
