Following an open EOI and shortlisted competition process, Lyons with Birrelli Architects and Maddison Architects have been awarded the tender for Stage 1 works on the design of the new Devonport City Living project.
Located in the heart of town, Devonport Place is a Civic Centre / Council Office, Community Library, Convention Centre and Art Gallery in one 'complex', with a separate Food Market and Car-parking Structure, all designed around a new Civic Square. The project is the first stage of the Devonport 'Living City' project which aims to revitalise Devonport and the North West Tasmanian region both culturally and economically. We have partnered with Maddisons, who will design the Food Market, and Launceston architectural practice Birrelli, who will be our 'local' collaborator.
Following the winning of an open EOI and shortlisted competition process, Lyons Architects, with Iredale Pedersen Hook Architects and ASPECT Studios has commenced the design of Perth's new city square, called Yagan Square.
In the words of the Perth's Metropolitan Redevelopment Authority... "Yagan Square will be Perth City Link's crowning feature and is set to become one of Perth’s top public destinations. Yagan Square will see the return of food ,community and city life to the Horseshoe Bridge and be a place for people to meet, connect, discover and celebrate Western Australia's produce, heritage and environment."
Lyons as Principal consultant and lead designers, are also working in close collaboration with a range of artists and design professionals, such as Paul Carter, Jon Tarry, Helen Smith / Jeremy Kirwin Ward and Shaun Gladwell, from the commencement of the concept design phase, to create a uniquely integrated public art space. Yagan Square will be opened in 2017.
The new Lyons/CGA designed Lady Cilento Hospital opened its doors to patients and families on 29 November.
Six years in the masterplanning and design and three years in construction this new $1.2 billion quaternary hospital is one of the most advanced paediatric facilities in the world.
Using the concept of a living tree, the environmentally friendly design provides a bright and welcoming environment for children and their families with access to dedicated family spaces, public art and rooftop gardens.
