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 team at Crossley Architects are proud to be Australian and to live in this picturesque Country we call home, which is why we were excited to read one of our project's in our very own backyard had made the Sydney Morning Herald's "Best of Australia: 50 Unforgettable Adventures".

A Crossley Architects project, Resorts World Sentosa, was recently featured on Channel 7's 'Tom & Ben's Singapore Sling'.
The hosts took a tour of the aquarium on Sentosa Island and swam with the sharks. Tom even claimed it was the 'the best thing he has ever seen'!
