Work Description

D&C Design, Urban Design and Landscape Plan

There are over 160 level crossings in Metropolitan Melbourne. The Victorian Government has a program to remove these conflicts over the coming years, with two recently completed. Springvale was one of these two (2) stations, and CCG were engaged as part of a consortium that won this Alliance project with Networx and VicRoads. 

This particular station building in Springvale, designed by CCG Architects in conjunction with Jacksons Architects, demonstrates how a public space can be a very important place for both the community and the town centre. This new public forecourt has been designed to reinforce intuitive wayfinding, provide a place to sit and wait for a bus, train, or a friend. The selection of palm trees gives an instant scale to the space, and they are able to be replanted should the space be upgraded at some time in the future.
