2017 Australian Urban Design Awards: Commendation for Delivered Outcome – Large Scale

Junction Place, Wodonga by Aspect Studios, Development Victoria and City of Wodonga.

Jury citation:

Junction Place, Wodonga convincingly reinvents the spaces and places left behind by a relocated railway line. The linear qualities of a redundant heritage station, a platform, a goods shed and the spaces between are transformed into a civic promenade that connects Junction Place to the city centre.

A lthough the project is still in its early stages of realization, significant urban impact is already evident – it celebrates and enhances the local culture and economy, and looks to the future of an evolving community. Junction Place demonstrates a successful collaboration between state and local governments, local businesses and the community.

Location: Wodonga (VIC)

Client: Places Victoria | Lead developer: Development Victoria
