Centre for Children's Health Research

We designed this state-of-the-art centre to inspire university and hospital research teams and advance their work tackling some of the biggest challenges in children’s health.

For the first time, paediatric research talent from the Queensland University of Technology, University of Queensland and Children’s Health Services are together under one roof in a highly flexible, fit-for-purpose knowledge hub and workplace.

The design promotes daily interaction and knowledge sharing among more than 400 researchers, especially in the communal zones stacked vertically within the building’s atrium.
