With an approach that puts community wellbeing at the forefront, the Burwood Brickworks was designed in consultation with eco-trailblazer Joost Bakker.
It’s driven by the Living Building Challenge (LBC), which is a US sustainability and environment impact certification. LBC has a strict criteria such as using sustainable, recycled and non-toxic materials, recycling water, using renewable energy and net zero carbon footprint.
And it’s also got a lot of other innovative and progressive measuring points, like a happiness quotient.
With such strict guidelines, it’s easy to see why there are under two dozen buildings around the entire globe that qualify for an LBC certification. We have so far provided lighting for display suites and tenancies including Little Mandarin Yoga, Canning’s Butchers and Gami.

Obviously not just any luminaires and lighting components can adhere to these rigid guidelines and ensure that they are compliant with red-List free chemicals. Luckily, we’ve had experience in this space, with projects like the first stand-alone fashion retailer (in Country Road, Chadstone) to be awarded a five-star Green Star rating.
Our products used that match the LBC criteria include:
- Boost 10W
- Boost 14.5W
- Mini Roll tracklights
- Roll tracklights
- Cognito downlights
- Serene LED Panel
- Kit downlights
