Practice opens Australia studio as base for predicted opportunities
John McAslan & Partners has opened a studio in Sydney as part of plans to expand its operations in Australia in tandem with its role on the regeneration of the city’s historic Central Station.
It is the architect’s only office outside the UK after its Doha project office closed earlier this year after four years.
The practice, which led on the transformation of London’s King’s Cross Station, is part of a multidisciplinary design team for the AU$955 (£533m) Central Station job, working alongside Woods Bagot and Laing O’Rourke.
Practice executive chairman John McAslan said upgrading the 112-year-old station would deliver a step change for Australia’s most populous city and serve as the backbone for its new metro.
“The new studio in Sydney is an exciting development for the practice in a dynamic world city,” he said.
“We look forward to working on the extraordinary Sydney Metro upgrade of Central Station and to developing new opportunities within the Australian market.”
JMP’s other offices are in London and Edinburgh.
