Central Station is one of the major gateways between the Sydney CBD and surrounding suburbs, accommodating thousands of commuters every day. The design aims to transcend the functional and aesthetic landscape of this precinct to better service community life and celebrate the historical architectural context of Central Station. The concept is established on the theory of perception; specifically, the way users perceive and memorise the place. It aims to prioritise pedestrian access and movement through the site along the light rail corridor. Beyond that, the Central precinct will provide an improved transit experience by cultivating the social dimension of public transportation. The precinct also forms the southern end of Sydney, with three ‘spines’, connecting the vibrant Hay Market and Chippendale with Surry Hills. Central station will become a destination, a place to go to rather just a place to go through.
