Brimbank Harvester Library
Brimbank Harvester Library, Sunshine, Melbourne
Situated on the historic McKay Sunshine Harvester Works site, the City of Brimbank Branch Library has design elements drawn from the sawtooth roof forms of Sunshine's manufacturing history, and the external colours reflect the burnished golden colour of wheat ready for harvest. The new branch library, council service and administration centre has natural light that floods the internal spaces of the building through the repetitive, waved roof formation, which not only creates an architectural rhythm but was also extremely cost effective to build.
