Fish Lane welcomes a new residential building: Upper House

The new 32-storey building, designed by Koichi Takada Architects and contracted by Aria Property Group, has opened its doors and offers residents a wealth of five-star amenities…

Upper House, the tallest building in South Brisbane, is home to Australia’s first double-storey rooftop club, a wellness centre, basement parking and a top-tier hub of quality dining and entertainment options right on its doorstep.  

Upper House is also the first project for Aria to achieve a “Design Review Rating”, receiving a 5 Star Green Star Rating, ensuring the building’s construction was as sustainable as possible.

As for the building’s exterior, its nature-inspired facade features weaving timber ribbons, dancing balconies and soft ambient lights, uniting to create a truly mesmerising addition to the South Brisbane skyline. 

But perhaps its most impressive feature is the 29-metre artwork on the building’s facade. Upper House reveals a beautiful work by prominent artist Judy Watson titled ‘bloodlines weaving string and water.’ Joining the incredible 25 works already in the precinct’s growing collection of public art, we highly suggest taking a stroll and experiencing this new addition at night as it lights up to reflect starlight. 

Want to check it out for yourself? Make a day of it and stop in to Upper House’s downstairs neighbours, Lisboa Caffe for one of their famous Portuguese custard tarts. Or watch Upper House glimmer in the night from El Planta, and savour one of their delicious plant-based Tostadas!

Whether you opt for sweet treats beneath the palms or late-night snacks, be sure to check out the impressive building on your next stroll through Fish Lane. And while you stroll through the fairy-lit laneway, keep an eye out for Fish Lane’s other exquisite artworks on show.
