2019 Australian Urban Design Awards: Commendation for Built Projects – Local and Neighbourhood Scale

Rosanna Station by MGS Architects and Jacobs

Jury citation

The project re-engages the train station as an important civic intervention within the community. The station performs many roles; as bridge, placemaker, community hub and formal intervention that brings a greater level of safety and amenity to the local community.

The station encourages both commuter and general pedestrian and cycle cross-permeability through the precinct into the surrounding neighbourhood centre. Views to the tree canopies in the adjacent Turnham Avenue and to the Rosanna Parklands are maintained through the concourse, ensuring the qualities of the surrounding local context are acknowledged and absorbed. Colour and material themes lighten the infrastructure’s required “heaviness” and were developed through community consultation to bolster a sense of ownership. An embedded sense of local placemaking supports the development of socially sustainable civic interventions.

Location: Rosanna (VIC)
