Rose Bay's new Sydney Seaplanes Terminal has opened its doors and taken flight in spectacular style. This stunning venue, including a terminal, lounge and bar, function area and flying boat museum, is suspended over Australia's beautiful Sydney Harbour. Crossley Architects were honoured to be granted the opportunity to design and document this new seaplane base in their very own (be it extensive) backyard.
The team at Crossley Architects were pleased to see Empyrean Lighting, a local Sunshine Coast company, being acknowledged yesterday for their success exporting LED luminaires globally.
We have enjoyed working closely with Empyrean Lighting on aquarium projects worldwide. Kevin and the team have assisted us with pushing the boundaries of lighting and biomimetics, and we look forward to seeing where the next projects will take us and Australian lighting technology in the future.

Succeeding His Excellency Mahmood Mohd Al Jarwani's recent announcement, Crossley Architects are pleased to publicise their involvement in the Aquarium of Oman. Advanced Aquarium Technologies in association with Crossley Architects have been engaged to design and construct the $20 million public aquarium as part of the Palm Mall project in Muscat, Oman.
The aquarium will consist of 5000sqm of marine exhibits, each designed with the objective of spreading a strong conservation message in the Middle East.
Confronting but true, this video published four years ago by WildAid and Shark Savers to raise awareness of the impact of the consumption of shark fin soup on marine biodiversity shouldn't be forgotten.
Research shows that some shark populations have declined by up to 98% in the last 15 years and an estimated 100 million sharks are killed every year with fins from up to 73 million used for shark fin soup, primarily to supply the market in Mainland China. Spreading awareness is vital to putting an end to this crisis.
Remember “when the buying stops, the killing can too”.
The nominated scheme by Crossley Architects for the Queen's Park Memorial Entry in Maryborough has been released to the public. The scheme is an engaging weathering steel sculpture, with laser cut imagery, forming a silhouette of the Anzac Cove Hills. The sculpture comprises integrated concrete and stone seating, planters and sections of arbour. The arbour serves as a permanent and living reminder that places, people and attitudes change, grow and soften with time.
The location of Duncan Chapman's memorial statue is currently under analysis with our own Senior Architect, Grant Calder, meeting on site to discuss possible options.
The following article was released by the Fraser Coast Chronicle to discuss:
Duncan Chapman's statue is being carved in NSW in time to be unveiled on Anzac Day next year but its final resting place in Maryborough's Queens Park is still being determined.
