Melbourne Convention Centre and South Wharf Precinct

Integration of the public realm with large scale buildings and facilities is the key to ASPECT Studios design for the new Melbourne Convention Centre and the adjacent South Wharf mixed use precinct.

ASPECT Studios design allows continuous and seemingly uninterrupted access through the site and amongst the buildings β€” no small task in a precinct that contains a convention centre, hotel, retail, residential, public forecourts, promenades, laneways, heritage landscapes and the now refurbished Exhibition Centre park.
