Look and Feel

Brisbane Plaza Premium Lounge Seating

Plaza Premium Lounge in Brisbane Airport engaged an Australian designer from Mitchel Squires & Associates to employ rustic elements with modern structures and fine materials in its design. The look and feel of Australia is evident the moment you walk through the doors.

Victorian ash wood is used throughout the lounge to create a warm and relaxing ambiance, which seamlessly complements the Italian marble flooring in the bar area. Close to the reception area is the lounge wall featuring a series of 3D tiles that are inspired by the components of water, sand and minerals in Australia to reinforce the natural elements in the contemporary lounge design. The soaring windows bring extra charm by filling up the lounge with natural sunlight and offering magnificent views over both the innovatively designed terminal as well as the runway.
