The Charles Perkins Centre or “The Hub”, as it’s known, is an architectural statement on its own. Designed to support academics and students from all disciplines working to develop real-world solutions to ease the burden of obesity, diabetes and cardiovascular disease, this iconic building offers the next generation of researchers and practitioners a place to collaborate, learn, inspire and train.
Mirror staircases, located at the western and eastern ends of the building, connect the 7 levels with almost 200 square metres of glazed balustrades in each. Active Metal’s work in this impressive building was wide and varied, and included glazed balustrades to 2 other stairs and also a glazed structural skylight.
