arete Australia successfully completed the University of Melbourne Building 168 Level 5 AFSE Hub fitout. arete was awarded the partial Lump Sum and Design & Construct Contract to develop a purpose-built office and collaborative space for the AFSE Program located within the University's Parkville Campus.

Our team took on the challenge of creating a culturally inclusive space that embodies indigenous-led engagement and design, and the Level 5 AFSE Hub fitout showcases a unique vision to incorporate the Indigenous experience into the architecture, landscape, and materiality.

The completed project provides a permanent home for the AFSE Program, which includes an open plan office, meeting rooms, study rooms, kitchens, amenities, and an operable façade system that allows users to interact with the Indigenous landscape elements.

We are proud of our involvement in this project, and in creating a space that promotes cultural inclusivity and the significance of Indigenous experience in contemporary design. We invite you to explore the space and appreciate its impressive functionality and beauty.
