Appointed to incorporate public seating to the external fringe of the shopping centre.

Burwood Brickworks Public Realm, Melbourne

Burwood Brickworks in Victoria is the first retail shopping centre to achieve the Living Building Challenge® Petal Certification. This is the worlds most rigorous measure of the built environment administered by The International Living Future Institute. We were appointed to design & implement an external seating package to respond to the needs of social distancing that offered more options for seating & planting to support the food retailers in an outdoor environment. In addition to this, it was identified that there was a need to “soften” the external space with the overall designs & furniture selection to encourage dwell time, comfort, accessibility & socialisation. All proposed furniture designs & selections had to comply with the Living Building Challenge requirements, considering materiality & fixing methods to maximise sustainability.
