The Burwood Brickworks site as its name sake suggests has a long history of producing clay bricks to greater Melbourne. The 18 hectare site now a world leading community focused precinct with retail spaces, multi-residential living and expansive and lush public spaces. 

With a key sustainability focus the development was designed to achieve a 5-star Green Star Communities certification. The Garden apartments precinct of the Burwood Brickworks development comprises of 267 dwellings across six multi-residential buildings.  

Häfele assisted with integration and coordination of multiple hardware solutions throughout the Burwood Brickworks development, from commercial architectural door hardware to furniture fittings solutions. 

A comprehensive door hardware schedule was prepared by Häfele’s industry trained scheduling team, tailoring individual solutions for each unique area of the development. Exceptional quality door hardware was selected for both public spaces and residential dwellings. The Torquay lever in Häfele’s own graphite black was selected for the steel framed doors of the external retail tenancies. Where satin stainless steel levers were selected for the apartment front entries, creating a contemporary and robust aesthetic. 

Joinery hardware solutions by Häfele complement the bespoke joinery designed by Hayball. The functional and elegant Matrix Slim provides soft close functionality to the kitchens with a subtle matt silver powder coat. Argo Vario inserts in the same silver finish aid in unifying the drawer storage solutions. Cleverly sized Oska bins fit neatly underneath the sink to provide the ultimate space saving solution. 

Häfele’s project team offered extensive support in all phases of the Burwood Brickworks development and was available from early planning, to onsite consultation, through to the successful completion of the Garden apartments precinct. 

Hafele’s performance at the Burwood Brickworks development was recognised by Hacer Group and was awarded with a letter of appreciation for outstanding supplier performance.
