An Architectural Makeover Down Under

This winning bid for the redevelopment of Melbourne’s historic Flinders Street Station transforms the landmark into a modern 21st century transport hub while retaining its best known heritage features & buildings to reflect the spirit of the original design. The new social hub on the banks of the Yarra River will include a public plaza, amphitheater, marketplace, & permanent home for arts & cultural festivals, as well as a public art gallery that pays tribute to the indigenous life & culture to whom the area was significant.

The weatherproof, articulated filigree vaulted roof-scape is a respectful yet dynamic interpretation and contextual response to the history, function and location of this very special place in the heart of Melbourne.
