Congratulations to Genton Architecture who’ve won the Victorian Government design competition for the $63 million transformation of Frankston Station.
McGregor Coxall provided Landscape Architecture services for the final stage of the competition and helped to develop the public domain within and surrounding the station. The proposed ‘beach’ concept provides a delightful space and a sense of arrival in this waterfront town whilst integrating the station upgrade works into Frankston’s public domain. The developed formal language comprising pavement, integrated gardens and planting palettes was well received by the jury.
Construction of the new station will begin later this year and will include a new bus interchange, wider footpaths, fresh landscaping, and road improvements to reduce congestion.
McGregor Coxall Melbourne Director Christian Borchert said, “The jury complemented the sensitive use of materials and the relationship between landscape and architecture which supports the notion of a coastal city setting. We hope that the public space can become a game changer in how both, visitors and residents will perceive the city and its relationship to the waterfront. We are very much looking forward to collaborating with the team on the implementation phase of the project.”
