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.
Integral to Channel Nine’s brief was the ability for studio broadcasting in an inner city setting. The concept was to tie existing buildings at St Georges Terrace with a new studio pavilion at 253 St Georges Terrace resulting in a transformational campus environment that improves collaboration and provides maximum exposure for the brand.
Change and Culture are the quintessential drivers behind reinvigoration of The Goods Shed. Revival of this space for community interest and cultural celebration were the motivating values intrinsic to the success of this Creative Hub.
Cox were commissioned with Aurecon by Transport for New South Wales as designers for the concept design, documentation and administrative works for this new ferry wharf.
Putney Hill infills an existing middle ring Sydney suburb, at the “missing middle” density advocated by the NSW Minister for Planning. A total of 791 dwellings ranging from apartments to houses have been constructed in six stages.
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).
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.
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.
The purpose of the station design study was to explore the feasibility of the architectural vision and passenger experience, property acquisition, station planning and constructability implications.
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.
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 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.
Singapore Management University is a campus designed to integrate the Singapore CBD with its western parkland in which the city’s main cultural buildings are housed.
