Torrens Junction Rail Separation Project: Bowden Station
South Australia

This deeply collaborative project has improved safety and accessibility at the station, and unexpectedly, but delightfully acted as a catalyst for public art.

Caulfield to Dandenong Level Crossing Removal
Victoria
Carnegie Station, Murrumbeena Station, Hughesdale Station, Clayton Station and Noble Park Station, Victoria

The Caulfield to Dandenong Level Crossing Removal (CTD) project comprised the replacement of nine dangerous rail level crossings with five elevated railway stations along one of Melbourne’s busiest transport corridors. By elevating the line and stations, this project presented an opportunity to transform an extensive tract of land within Melbourne’s metropolitan zone into a new linear park.

Cheltenham Station
New South Wales
Cheltenham, New South Wales

Cheltenham Station forms part of the Northern Sydney Freight Corridor Program, initiated by the Federal and NSW State Government, to improve capacity, reliability and safety. The project included the construction of six kilometers of new and upgraded track to separate freight from all-stop passenger trains and required a complete reconfiguration of Cheltenham Station.

Wynyard Station Upgrade
New South Wales
Sydney, New South Wales

Wynyard Station was opened in 1932 as part of a network loop devised to service the city centre. Construction was undertaken as a complex cut and cover methodology, by first excavating and then re-building Wynyard Park on top. The station consists of a large single level, low height concourse, atypical of underground stations in the area and had been subject to numerous modifications over the decades.

Sydney Airport Marketplace
New South Wales
Sydney, New South Wales

COX are the design and master architect for this new signature space at Sydney International Airport. Designed to allow operational continuity throughout construction, this space houses a new dwell space for passengers. The 2,500m2 space provide a food and beverage marketplace focus within the airport. The unique panoramic views across the adjacent planes either on the apron and runway brings back the excitement of flight.

Melbourne Square
Victoria
Melbourne, Victoria

Melbourne Square will be one of the city’s largest residential projects and will provide a new civic hub and network of green spaces in Southbank. The project will transform an under-utilised city block into a vertical village featuring six towers (four residential buildings, a hotel and commercial office).

Brisbane Ferry Terminals
Queensland
Brisbane, Queensland

The primary objective of this project was to find a resilient solution to Brisbane City Council’s CityCat terminals which were heavily impacted by the devastation of the 2011 flood. This was achieved by devising an ingenious system of parts, that enable the terminals to give way in a flood and return immediately to operation after the event, all using the natural water flow.

Flinders Street Revitalisation
Queensland
Townsville, Queensland

This project recaptures the main street of a city that had been, like many worldwide, turned into a pedestrian mall in the 1980s. While some have rejuvenated their city centres, here was an example of the opposite – people embracing the suburban shopping centre and deserting the city centre.

SW1
Queensland
South Bank, Brisbane, Queensland

SW1 is a mixed commercial and residential development occupying a 1.8 hectare site adjacent to the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre. Although the land had been reserved for expansion of the Centre, it was decided to create a precinct instead that helped to connect the South Bank Parklands with the neighbourhood behind.

Thuringowa Riverway Arts Centre and Lagoons
Queensland
Townsville, Queensland

The Riverway Arts Centre is the centrepiece of a much larger project, firstly to rehabilitate the Ross River, and secondly to create a community heart in a city where shopping malls governed social interaction. Without then knowing what elements to put in it, the mayor sought from us a master plan to transform 18 hectares of mostly barren riverfront park for multiple community activities.

Allisee Residential Community
Queensland
Hollywell, Gold Coast, Queensland

Allisee is a medium-scale apartment residential community set around an inner harbour, pools, parks and gardens. Its configuration differs markedly from a former strategy which had proposed a much higher, denser ‘wall’ of buildings encircling the harbour with scattered, lower value development around the remaining site.
