Location: Melton, Melbourne, Australia
Project Size: 225ha
Brookfield is a 225 hectare area to the west of Melton; a town 45km to the west of Melbourne. The area is zoned residential and is currently going through the Melbourne Planning Authority precinct planning process.
The brief was to create a vision for a thriving water side village. Specifically, the project is seeking to establish a direct connection to an existing reservoir; its inspiration being the terraced hillside towns of the Mediterranean. As such, the design process has been geared to leading a vision for the project that can in turn influence precinct planning to ensure Brookfield can be developed to its potential.
