A high-powered Brisbane couple are taking on a celebrity architect in court over a luxury unit development they say threatens their historic home in an exclusive suburb.

Barrister Daniel Clarry and his wife Sarah, a lawyer and Rio Tinto executive, have launched a legal appeal to protest the development of a luxury, five-storey apartment block in the upmarket riverside suburb of New Farm in Brisbane.

Approval for the ‘multi-residential concept’ named Arcilla in Maxwell Street, New Farm was given to architect Joe Adsett and developer Craig Purdy in September.

Mr and Mrs Parry argue the design is too large for its location in the street and that its underground carpark will damage their circa 1937 home.
