Frankston Station

Genton entered and won the open design competition based on the idea of designing a station and precinct that would provide the City of Frankston with an iconic and connected heart.

The design tackled the disconnected public amenities and the lack of presence of the station platform and buildings from the street. The new Frankston Station will be a structure of scale that acts as a meeting point, not a place to avoid.

It’s a translucent all-weather shelter that doubles as a landmark connecting the entire transport precinct. It supports visual corridors that provide the public with a sense of direction along streetscapes vegetated with coastal plant species to remind them of where they are.

Adding to the improved amenity of the Frankston Station and surrounds will be an ‘active transport network’ to encourage the use of footpaths and bicycles. Genton has also included crime prevention measures through environmental design such as passive surveillance and visual permeability.
