Nicholas Grimshaw & Partners has won a competition to design the new £156 million Southern Cross Station in Melbourne, Australia. The scheme will transform the existing Spencer Street Station into a world-class transport interchange. It will upgrade station facilities, incorporate a new coach and bus terminal and taxi rank, and provide retail and office accommodation in pods that lie above the main public concourse. Other improvements include new escalators, ticket barriers, passenger lounges, and baggage check-in areas. The design aims to make the station the focal point for regeneration and help encourage investment in the area. Principal features are the grand arrivals hall and the domed roof structure. The station enclosure, designed to be tall, light and transparent, is housed under a single roof space, making the entire interchange visible from every entrance.
