The project investigates a new strategy of regenerating Melbourne suburb town centres. The research began by analysing typical suburb town centres. Site visits resulted in a discovery in a lot of issues about existing town centres. For example, all suburb centres are supermarket orientated and lacks architectural character. The chosen site is the Donnybrook suburb. Although it is currently an undeveloped area, the Victorian Government has announced that will be unlocked as a new suburb in Melbourne by rezoning ten thousand lots in next ten years. This design will address existing issues as well as fulfilling the needs of the future needs of residents.

The strategy is to utilise Bunnings sheds, which is the most characteristic sheds in Melbourne suburbs, and unboxing the Bunnings architecture quality and injecting it into the Donnybrook town centre. The other strategy is to affect the land value of Donnybrook through architecture. The existing larger sheds can be rejuvenated and create space which operates in different scales. The portal frame can also be utilised in the future to accommodate different programs.
