The 3,600sqm Superfloor will set a new global benchmark for innovation community curation and partner amenity. A dedicated collaboration space that connects the Precinct, the Superfloor is accessible to all colocated partners and has been designed by leading architect Woods Bagot, creating a space that will be at the heart of the innovation community and foster a culture of collaboration and be supported by a dedicated team of curators and connectors.
The Superfloor will be open and operational between 7am and 8pm Monday-Friday and offers a range of spaces available for hire including The Forum, The Studio, and The Launchpad.
With year-round activations and events held in this space including pitches, demo days, hackathons, launches, exhibitions, skills development, social and cultural events, it will be a place that brings the community together.
The video below captures how some of the events that Melbourne Connect have been delivering in recent years.
The Launch Pad
The Launch Pad showcases a central open plan area to facilitate ideation and knowledge sharing between precinct tenants, the University, guests and the business sector. A dynamic space used for creating, prototyping, pitching and testing, it will be the hotspot of the Superfloor with an ever-changing canvas of events and activations. With a 70 person capacity, this high traffic area of the Superfloor provides an open plan hub of knowledge exchange for those within the precinct.
A highly versatile space located alongside the entrance to the Superfloor can host 400 (lecture), 200 (dining) or even be split into three smaller rooms with 100 person capacity for events such as seminars, presentations and workshops.
Facilities will rival those of a high-end purpose-built conference venue. The Forum has views into the Science Gallery Melbourne’s atrium gallery, providing guests with access to beautiful displays of art and cultural installations.
A high-traffic space with ground floor exposure at Melbourne Connect, this 70 person tiered seating space will be a lively area hosting workshops and group activities, and a “war room” for project work. Visible to passers-by it will give a sneak peek into Melbourne Connect’s energetic and dynamic community.
Meeting Rooms and Workspaces
Co-located partners also have access to the 16 bookable meeting rooms ranging in size, from 4 pax rooms to a 22 pax boardroom, all equipped with AV and VC as well as on-site services to suit all occasions, including beverages (water and barista coffee), catering (morning tea through to hot meals), technical support and workshop/meeting equipment hire. Supported by a dedicated concierge service as well as a series of shared and informal spaces serviced by a café, partners have unlimited access to these spaces complete with free WiFi and technology support.
