The Brimbank Community and Civic Centre is a landmark building for the City of Brimbank, signifying growth, revitalisation and a vision for an interconnected community. Located in central Sunshine, the project is a major new community and public building for the west of Melbourne. Our team was selected following a design competition where we put forward a solution that met the diverse needs of Brimbank City Council. Our design maximises community participation, provides quality workplaces for the council and enables growth in both social capital and the local economy. The facility is part of a wider vision to rejuvenate the Sunshine retail strip and create growth in the local economy. The six level building includes a library, council chambers and services, community meeting rooms, exhibition spaces and the Sunshine Customer Service Centre. The building establishes Brimbank as the dynamic heart of Melbourne’s west by demonstrating its commitment to outstanding community services and sustainable design solutions.
