Architecture that reflects Brunswick’s rich history


Brunswick has a rich history and a wonderfully diverse population. With architecture by the award-winning architects at Carr, the design pays homage to Brunswick’s industrial heritage, solidifying Brunswick Yard as an example of how the suburb’s rich history continues to live on today.

Chris McCue from Carr says that “The design references the robust warehouses in the immediate precinct, and the rhythm of the finer grain heritage buildings along Sydney Road. Modernist influences are evident in the rawness and bold honesty of the building. The central outdoor space takes inspiration from the suburban backyard.”

Brunswick Yard is an important contribution to the evolution of Brunswick’s urban landscape, with architecture that takes its cues from the flat roof lines, simplified forms, cantilevered eaves and large, unadorned windows that characterise the modernist movement. The raw concrete, exposed steel and glazing are juxtaposed by a curated selection of plants that create synergy between the man-made environment and nature.

Artisanal Delights


Ideally located on the corner of Ballarat Street and Ovens Street, some of the best eateries and coffee in Melbourne are right on your doorstep at Brunswick Yard. Locals will know that many of Brunswick’s best treasures are hidden along side-streets and alleyways, in converted terraces and warehouses where homely vibes are the norm.

Wake up in the morning and join a line of Brunswick locals at Ovens St Bakery. Located right outside your home at Brunswick Yard, this local favourite offers mouth-watering artisanal sourdoughs and perfectly flaky croissants. Ona Coffee is a new arrival on Ovens Street, which is only adding to the buzz of this vibrant area. This cafe boasts a first-to-Melbourne menu of over 25 types of coffees, including specific vintages.

From early mornings to late nights, you will always be able to find a restaurant, gastro pub, beer garden or secret hole-in-the-wall eatery to satisfy your appetite. For food lovers, Brunswick is truly the ideal place to live.
