exchange innovation precinct

The new 'Exchange' precinct has established a dynamic urban heart in Perth’s south, building on Curtin University's campus core. The REALMstudios’ master plan has created a cohesive vision incorporating a generous and sustainable series of public & communal spaces in association with four significant new buildings:  

  • School of Design & Built Environment Faculty building by John Wardle Architects, 

  • Nesuto Hotel, Residential Apartments and mixed-use building by Six Degrees  

  • St Katherine's College student accommodation by Nettleton Tribe  

  • Twin Dolphin Hall student accommodation also by Nettleton Tribe. 

REALMstudios was a core consortium partner over 4-5 years from bid phase to delivery.
