Riparian Plaza in Brisbane’s CBD, standing 200m tall is a magnificent representation of modernist architecture pioneered by the late Harry Seidler. Apartment 4802, a complete bare shell fit out by Noel Robinson, is the only apartment in the iconic 53 level tower to be created from a blank canvas.
The apartment was designed to complement the building’s curved exterior with sweeping interior walls dividing the master bedroom and living room with open and simple flowing lines. Design details such as the shape of the furniture, the circular ceiling recess, and artwork were all inspired by the building’s exterior form. The floor plan takes full advantage of the exquisite north-east panoramic views spanning the Storey Bridge across to Moreton Bay Island. The simple, subtle aesthetics and joinery detailing throughout the apartment are cornerstones of minimalism achieved through carefully concealing extraneous elements and services from view and creating spacious, functional and open living spaces.
