Breese Street, Brunswick
Brochure PDF (4.8mb)

Welcome to Breese Street, our second project in Brunswick – a suburb brimming with a distinctly contemporary village character. Small progressive businesses, a vibrant culinary scene and local creativity represent a cultural eclecticism that encourages diversity and discovery.

Set at the neighbourhood’s core, Breese Street is within walking distance of it all and has trains on one hand, trams on the other and one foot already on the cycle path. Our new project promises to settle into the mix sympathetically, with a dedicated focus on nurturing community and exemplifying sustainability.

Very Good Apartments

Breese Street is collection of 1, 2 and 3-bedroom apartments designed by DKO and Brunswick locals Breathe Architecture. Inspired by other local, sensitively designed projects, Breese Street will naturally advocate sustainable living. Fossil fuel-free, with a 7.5-star sustainability rating and a maximum of five neighbours per floor, it’s a building designed for a daily life in easy synergy with our environment.

Breese Street’s residents will form a genuine community, one where neighbours connect – this time not over the fence, but while tending veggies on the rooftop. We’re aiming for back-to-basics conversation and cooperation in future-focused, proactive communal spaces.

Designed for Tomorrow
Jeremy McLeod, Breathe Architecture

What does it mean to say we’re designing for tomorrow? We’re talking about the key foundations for building better inner-city homes: proactive engagement with our natural environment, fostering a sense of community, and reconsidering the norm in housing design and ways of living.

Listen in as Breathe Architecture director Jeremy McLeod and journalist Greg Muller explore how broadening our concept of sustainability is fundamental to designing for the future.

Brunswick by Foot
On Your Doorstep

Breese Street is set in its own transport hub, with Anstey train station (pictured) within a minute’s walk and Sydney Road tram stops just one block the other way. The Upfield Bike Path skirts the train line and connects to the Capital City Trail, and there is an increasing number of car share spaces popping up nearby.

Design Signatures
Fossil Fuel-Free

No fossil fuels are created or consumed at Breese Street. Instead of gas cooking, kitchens will be equipped with induction cooktops. Air-conditioning goes unneeded in the building, having been designed with proper attention to thermal mass and given appropriate glazing, orientation and external shading. Heating is hydronic, and all the energy required by the building is fully sustainably sourced. Residents will share in the savings generated by a combination of rooftop solar panels and GreenPower purchasing.

Breesey Bees with Honey Fingers

Rooftop hives come to Brunswick. Learn why bees are fundamental to our every day, and discover the joys – and practical benefits – of urban beekeeping in an essay informed by conversation with Nic Dowse. Read on.

Natives with MALA

The environmental significance of native plants is integral to the landscaping approach at Breese Street. It inspired a fascinating story about the natural history of the Merri area, from long before it was called Brunswick. Read on.

Liveability Survey
Now Closed

Our vision for Breese Street requires honesty and transparency, so we needed to hear from the people we’re designing for. Our Liveability Survey asked how you think apartment living could best be realised.

Your answers informed Breese Street’s design signatures, apartment floorplans and how we create its communal rooftop garden and amenities.
