As heritage consultants working with HASSELL and Herzog & de Meuron, we won an international design competition to transform the station and its 4.68 hectare site into a modern transport hub. Proposals retain the station’s historic features, while providing a contemporary transport hub that fits within its urban and riverside context. They integrate a new civic precinct with a public art gallery, plaza, amphitheatre, marketplace and a permanent home for arts and cultural festival organisations.

Flinders Street is the busiest station in the state of Victoria, with over 150,000 people passing through each day and projected numbers are set to increase.

The vaulted roofs are inspired by features of the original design that were never realised and flood the platforms with dappled, natural light.

New or improved concourses make it easier for people to move about and connect to other forms of transport.

The design complements the well-known historic Flinders Street building and corner entrance pavilion which will be repainted to their original colours.
