Aesop Indooroopilly store interior

An elegant undercroft of Oak, coir and steel

Created in partnership with Melbourne architecture firm Russell & George, our Indooroopilly signature store was designed with an undercroft in mind, and offers a clean, elegant space that alludes to subterranean retreats often used to escape Brisbane’s summer extremes.

European Oak is employed in abundance to achieve warm, raw hues across bench-tops, shelving, and most of the floor. Natural coir fibre covers the entrance, signalling underfoot a departure from the lively retail precinct beyond.

Walls are treated with rough-cast white render, in pleasing contrast with the timber surfaces and the blackened steel used to frame product display shelves and other fixtures. Soft lighting helps to effect an effortless calm that embodies not only our customary aesthetic but also Indooroopilly’s relaxed ambience.

‘Coolness and absence of heat and haste indicate fine qualities.’
