Multi-award winning international architectural practice John McAslan + Partners announces the opening of a new design studio in Sydney.

John McAslan + Partners (JMP), which led the award-winning transformation of London’s King’s Cross Station, is part of a multi-disciplinary, international design team with Woods Bagot and led by Laing O’Rourke to deliver the AU $955 million contract for the upgrade of the city’s historic Central Station.

JMP’s new Sydney studio will not only support the execution of the Central Station upgrade project but also function as a base for the practice to pursue other opportunities in Australia.

The architectural firm has an extensive portfolio of international projects and enjoys wide recognition for their work across cultural, education, transportation, residential, hotel and landscape sectors with over 150 international awards.

JMP will leverage their specialist experience in the regeneration of historic buildings as well as expertise in the delivery of large-scale infrastructure projects.

The backbone of Sydney’s public transport network, Central Station will be upgraded to include an innovative concourse and enhanced circulation spaces in addition to restoring the 112-year-old building.

John McAslan, executive chairman, John McAslan + Partners, comments:

“The new studio in Sydney is an exciting development for the practice in a dynamic world city. We look forward to working on the extraordinary Sydney Metro upgrade of Central Station and to developing new opportunities within the Australian market.”
