DKO and Breathe Architecture have designed a multi-residential development in Australia, using half a million recycled bricks.
The studio centred the design around sustainability, including economic, social and environmental sustainability. The project was guided by three key considerations: community, environment and architecture.
Four buildings, each with their own identity, have been wrapped with recycled bricks, paying homage to the area's history of brickwork, but also as a beacon to a more sustainable carbon-free future.
Connections between inside and outside spaces and generous communal areas encourage social interaction between neighbours, from public greenery and vegetable planters, to rooftop garden with outdoor dining facilities.
