About The Station Master’s Precinct
FORM’s Head Offices are now based at the historical Claremont Station Master’s House. FORM will enliven the entire Station precinct through a transformation of the Station Master’s House, the adjoining yard and the disused, historic Platform 3 as part of a new arts precinct including The Goods Shed.
Throughout the 1920s and 1930s when everyone traveled by train, the life of Claremont happened at the platform and the wider station precinct. It was the site of meetings and partings by so many travelers passing between station platforms. Where goods were loaded and unloaded in the rail yard, bound for the Royal Show. Where letters to loved ones from departing soldiers were released from troop train windows, weighted with a coin, and picked up and posted by children who tore down to the station at the sound of a whistle.
At the Station Master’s House FORM will create a connected, collaborative, and flexible office space with meeting and function rooms that adjoin the yard and platform.
