exchange innovation precinct stage one of greater curtin 

Located only 6km from the CBD, Exchange will form a new urban heart in Perth’s south, building onto the existing Curtin University campus.


The Exchange Public Realm & Landscape Masterplan delivered by REALMstudios creates a cohesive, integrated public realm in association with five significant new buildings including:

  1. Design & Built Environment Faculty building by John Wardle Architects,

  2. Boutique Hotel, Residential Apartments and mixed use building by Six Degrees and

  3. Three student accommodation buildings by Nettleton Tribe.

Collectively they provide a network of unique living, retail, commercial and teaching uses and spaces – offering everything a city requires in a ‘Distinctly Curtin’ setting, which is inspirational, innovative, comfortable, safe and inviting.

REALMstudios are a core consortium partner with Live in Learning (Infrared Capital Partners) and have led the external public & private realm components from bid phase through to construction delivery over the last three years. The project is a long term contract to, Fund, Design, Build, Operate and Maintain much of the precinct.


The project is now well into construction with Lend Lease Construction and Probuild appointed as lead D&C contractors. For further information visit:
