Chatswood Transport Interchange


This mixed-use infrastructure development rejuvenates the centre of Chatswood, completely replacing the existing station and bus interchange while maintaining their operations during construction.

The design re-joins the east and west halves of Chatswood and create a new north-south pedestrian connection to Chatswood Oval. An open air bus interchange connects on grade to the station entrance via a glazed pedestrian street, flanked with retail on one side and the station platforms on the other. Visual linkages between platforms and retail contrast with inward looking train stations of the past.

The four rail platforms that connect to the new Epping line incorporates the latest in technology and safety. Emphasis is placed on spatial clarity and intuitive wayfinding, making the station as easy to use as possible.

The podium is capped by a generous sunlit food court serving local workers and residents. Three slender residential towers, the tallest 40 storeys in height, mark the new transport gateway and geographic heart of Chatswood.

Folded metal screens forming a distinctive capping to each tower orient to the various destinations serviced by the station. The towers and podium are sculpted to unblock visual connections down major streets, minimise the construction impact on the station and minimise shadow impact on adjacent parkland.
