BURWOOD BRICKWORKS SHOPPING CENTRE
WURUNDJERI COUNTRY, BURWOOD, VICTORIA
Burwood Brickworks is aiming to become the first retail Living Building Challenge development in the world. Opened to the public in December 2019, the centre is home to a variety of retailers, including Woolworths, Dan Murphy’s and Readings Cinemas, who have each changed their standard fitout practices and materials to fit into the strict requirements of the LBC. Along with an urban rooftop farm, state-of-the-art wastewater treatment system, and statement murals by a local Indigenous artist, the centre is a suburban community hub that sets a world standard for healthy, inclusive living.
The project was subject to the LFIA’s LBC design competition in 2016.
