Neighbourhood is a new, thoughtfully considered, responsibly designed community by Breathe and Openwork. Neighbourhood comprises four distinct, mid-rise buildings — Garden View, Brick Lane, Fabric House and Quarters — arranged around a sublime, thoughtfully crafted courtyard by Openwork.

Inspired in name, form and materiality by the multi-layered industrial history of its Brunswick East location, each building is realised as a unique address, with a unique aesthetic and unique mix of elegant, generously sized residences.

Together, they form a human scaled precinct uniquely focused on community and environmental stewardship; a like-minded place where best practice sustainable design initiatives will enable carbon neutral living for generations to come.  

Sustainability — in all its forms — has been an all-encompassing focus for Neighbourhood, influencing site selection at the outset, and virtually every decision thereafter: from maximising thermal and energy efficiency to waste minimisation; responsible sourcing of materials, to the conservation of natural resources; the creation of tranquil spaces for private enjoyment, to the integration of public spaces that encourage social interaction.

Importantly, Neighbourhood will be 100% fossil fuel free.

We are proud to acknowledge the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation, the Traditional Custodians of the land upon which Neighbourhood stands. We recognise their continuing connection to land, waters and culture.‍
