Designed by Bates Smart, the space underwent a multi-million dollar refurbishment to create a coworking space with Palm Spring-like influences

Over five tonne of custom breezeblocks are used throughout, in screens, walls and joinery, referencing the existing concrete waffle slab and ground floor lobby brickwork.

Hub Parliament Station offers its members access to a range of workspaces including bespoke offices for up to 14 people, private offices, open plan dedicated and flexible desks, break out areas, high-tech meeting and event spaces.

Additional amenities include a fully serviced café operated by Hub Australia’s dedicated in-house hospitality team, large serviced meeting rooms, member kitchen and lounge, fitness space, end-of-trip facilities with towel service, parent and wellness rooms.
