Flinders Street Station

Cultural & Civic, Transport

Flinders Street Station



In 2011 the Victorian Government committed $1 million to a prize pool for an international design competition that supports excellence in design and creates a high profile development project for Victoria.

Receiving designs from some of the best practitioners in Australia and around the world, the competition’s ambition is to rejuvenate and restore Melbourne’s iconic Flinders Street Station. In response to the forecast population growth in Melbourne, the development of the area presents an opportunity to create new commercial and public open spaces in the heart of Melbourne’s CBD.

The winner of this competition is HASSELL with Herzog + de Meuron. The scheme has a careful and conceptually clear attitude to heritage, dealing extensively with the public realm, and examining how the relationship between the station and the adjoining transportation links may be improved.
