Frankston Station Design Competition Finalists Announced


Five Australian registered architects have been selected to prepare their vision for the new Frankston railway station.

A jury chaired by Victorian Government Architect Jill Garner chose the five from 39 anonymous entries submitted as part of a nationwide design competition. Jill was joined by Minister for Public Transport Jacinta Allan and Member for Frankston Paul Edbrooke joined at the Frankston Revitalisation Hub earlier this week to view the designs.

The finalists include:

  • Luke Farrugia and Andrew Shaper – two young practitioners on the central coast of New South Wales
  • Grimshaw – a large international practice with a Melbourne office
  • Genton – a mid-sized Melbourne practice  
  • Cullinan Ivanov – a mid-sized Sydney practice
  • Supermanouvre – a young international architecture and innovation practice based in Sydney.

Finalists will now work with technical experts to produce a more detailed design concept. The winner and preferred design will be announced in March 2017, with construction starting in late 2017. The successful team will be assigned the role of Project Architect for the station rebuild.

Rebuilding Frankston station is at the heart of the Andrews Labor Government’s $63 million transformation of the Frankston station precinct.
