Howard Smith Wharves unveils The Houses

The first two spaces, Bougainvillea and Greenhouse, are now open for event bookings.

Brisbane’s Howard Smith Wharves has opened the doors to two of four brand new event spaces, known as The Houses.

Located on the banks of the Brisbane River, The Houses comprise four distinct spaces designed by Fellow Interiors.

The four houses open out onto the lawns of Howard Smith Wharves, creating the perfect location for corporate gatherings, meetings and bespoke events.


Bougainvillea and Greenhouse are now open, with Citrus and Wisteria set to follow in late March.

Fellow Interiors co-founder Samantha Leigh said the spaces are contemporary yet timeless.

“We have created a collection of unique and intimate spaces, with our vision being to evoke the feeling of a beautiful home rather than a typical function space, each with its own story,” she said.


The largest of The Houses, Bougainvillea, can host events of up to 200 people and features a wrap-around veranda with views of the Story Bridge and city skyline.

Greenhouse is nestled right in the heart of Howard Smith Wharves’ gardens and can host events of up to 125 people. Reminiscent of an English glasshouse, the space opens onto a veranda, creating an alfresco dining or breakout area.

The final two houses, Citrus and Wisteria, will be smaller spaces perfect for intimate meetings and gatherings.


Howard Smith Wharves general manager of events Scott Bayne said the precinct offers a venue for every occasion.

“We have Howard’s Hall and The Rivershed which are great for larger events, but The Houses are a unique offering in the Brisbane event scene for smaller-scale events,” he said.

“Whether it’s a meeting which utilises both a house and the lawns for breakouts, or for a beautiful wedding, these spaces set the scene for an unforgettable event.”

Howard Smith Wharves also provides event catering for The Houses, offering everything from outdoor cooking and grazing menus to relaxed picnics.
