Shane Plazibat, Principal and founder of Plazibat Architects, is well-known for his commercially successful multi-residential, mixed use developments and bespoke residential homes. He has more than 25 years’ experience designing award winning projects such as New Farm riverfront apartment buildings Altura and Aquila, and Fig Tree Pocket Houses 1 and 2.
Shane has many years’ experience designing major civic, hospitality, residential and recreational projects in Hong Kong, London and Australia. Together with his comprehensive understanding of urban design and masterplanning, he brings his knowledge of residential styling to large multi-residential developments and bespoke houses to maximise their market appeal and meet the commercial needs of his clients.
Shane’s designs take inspiration from contemporary culture and celebrate space, light and structural order. He creates well-crafted, innovative buildings that are stylish, sought-after places to live, work and play. His practical approach and strong industry relationships achieve maximum value for his clients through high-quality marketable developments.
Shane’s high-end residential houses draw on his overseas experience and are known for their sophisticated design and quality craftsmanship. He understands how to design homes for a sub-tropical climate with a European sensibility. Plazibat homes are as unique as each client and provide the comfort, privacy and ease-of-living that only a bespoke design can give.
Shane is currently working on two contemporary hilltop homes in Hamilton, Brisbane for a family of five and a 10-storey boutique apartment building at Palm Beach on the Gold Coast.
