architect’s statement

 

Resting above the iconic Kangaroo Point Cliffs, Skye by Pikos affords seventy residential homes each experiencing uninterrupted views of the Brisbane City skyline, South Bank, the Botanic Gardens and the rivers reach.

The three towers sit on the site with just two apartments per tower, per floor. The architecture is founded on a highly considered local understanding of the relationship between sub-tropical living and the impact of the design resolution on the identity of Brisbane.

The expressive built form aims to positively contribute to the existing and developing character of Kangaroo point. A vegetated façade is integrated into each level establishing a consistent green, living identity.

Design Features

Landscaped Planting

 

Natural greenery is integrated into all levels of the built form from the street to the rooftop to establish a consistent and authentic lush appearance. The integration of green planting creates a seamless transition between indoor and outdoor, and increases privacy.

Layered Facades

 

Skye apartments are articulated with balconies, voids between building forms and individual screens to shade and protect the outlook of units.

Buildings That Breathe

 

Breathability is generated through considered design and operability, to increase privacy, sun shading and enhance building composition. Natural ventilation is an essential quality of the Skye apartments.

A Home Fit For The Future

 

Skye is designed for the long term, placing a sustainable future at the forefront of its groundbreaking design. Placed with the intention of enhancing Brisbane’s dynamic livability, Skye will form a bridge to vibrant public spaces. Future-proof parking spaces give residents the capability of supercharging electric cars.
