LITTLE BIG HOUSE

The iconic heritage listed house [originally known as Collins Place] has been transformed to Southbank’s newest hospitality venue.

We were engaged to create an interior space that reflected the history of the building with a contrasting “house party” themed styling overlay.

The final interiors have a faded glory aesthetic with oversized flora and fauna murals and aged patina walls and stenciled floors. Custom furniture had been designed to suit the venues small footprint and found objects have been introduced, creating a lived-in feel.

Branding elements have been used within the styling overlay with painted iconography, neon lighting and murals.

Design scope encompassed all aspects of the project including, briefing of branding and mural artists, and collaborating with H&E Architects on materiality, furniture design and room dressing.

ARIA

Aria Brisbane is Matt Moran and Bruce Soloman’s fine dining restaurant.

We were commissioned to give Aria Brisbane a new look through a soft interior update. The update needed to reflect the unique Queensland location and offering. To achieve this local artists and artisans were engaged in the styling scheme.

Working with local floral sculptor Bart Hassam a woven organic sculpture was created for the curved wall. Queensland ceramicist Megan Pulse created vessels that adorn the shelves and key touch points of the venue. A Sally Gabori painting remained, a prior procurement in an earlier styling brief.

Additional styling scope included a complete lighting change featuring Studio Henri Wilson lights. Updated ceiling and wall palette, introduction of wall treatments and repositioning of exiting artwork. Finally, a new floral theme was created with Hacienda Flowers that reflected the new look.

RIVERBAR & KITCHEN

Riverbar & Kitchen is situated on Eagle St overlooking the Brisbane River.

Emma Ross has been the venues interior stylist since inception. Working closely with H&E Architects on all materiality the venue takes the appearance of an old boat house with tales of fishing trips and river voyages expressed through surfaces and decoration.

Interior design includes furniture selection and design, prop items, soft furnishing, art and flotsam jetsam found on the purpose-built display walls and shelving. Key touch points have been considered with serving ware and soft furnishings following the theme of a boat house.

Recently the back bar was re-imagined, converting a high seating format to a relaxed lounge. Custom designed furniture and upholstery was introduced making this a favourite for functions and parties.
