The first library in Australia to be awarded a 5 Star Green Star rating
The architectural vision for Melton, which was recognized for national and international design excellence, was to deliver a facility that revitalizes and re-energizes the Melton community.
The facility comprises a theatre, lecture rooms, recording and editing studios for use by local education centres. The structure consists of a timber frame which encloses the building and a mezzanine slab which is constructed of concrete.
The Melton Library and Learning Hub is the first library in Australia to be awarded a 5 Star Green Star – Public Building Design PILOT rating from the Green Building Council of Australia.
