Stores are the glue that hold this culture together. They’re where the branding ends and the material enjoyment of design begins. One store that gets this is Brisbane’s Apartment, which has just reopened its doors after moving to larger premises. The fitout of this subteranean retail vault is spectacular, establishing it as hands down one of Australia’s premiere boutiques. The fact that such impressive retail spaces are appearing around the world outside bigger, more internationally recognised cities is hopefully a reassuring sign that interest and investment in this culture is broad enough to endure.
