...fjmt have brought the heart back into Chatswood by designing an exceptional entertainment venue for local, national and international artists to perform on Sydney's North Shore, for the people of Willoughby and the North Shore.
— Councillor Pat Reilly, Mayor, Willoughby City Council

fjmt was commissioned for the master plan, community consultation process and design of this landmark sustainable, public development. The project required innovative and flexible solutions to a complex and technically challenging brief, where the design evolved from a collaborative process with Council and its key user groups, stakeholders and wider community.

The project revitalises the heart of the third largest retail precinct in Australia and has become the new iconic, civic and cultural heart of the North Shore. It features a major public open space, a 5,000sqm library, 1,000-seat concert hall, 500-seat theatre, performance and exhibition spaces, restaurants, shops and basement parking.
