With the Melbourne Connect project the University of Melbourne (and consortium) redeveloped the former Royal Women’s Hospital into a new state-of-the art facility for education. The transformation includes a complete facade replacement, while still preserving and integrating heritage materials. The 1960s building will become an open, welcoming and light-filled building. .
The Melbourne Connect is situated next to the University’s Parkville campus. The precinct will hold research facilities, student accommodation, office spaces and a childcare center. Additionally the building will include public spaces, stores and cafes. Renovation started mid-2018 and is expected to finish in 2020.
