Jump Studios Collaborates with Populous to Deliver Comprehensive Upgrade to Interiors at Melbourne’s Iconic John Cain Arena

February 15, 2023

Jump Studios has collaborated with Populous to deliver a comprehensive upgrade to the Western Lounge at John Cain Arena, Melbourne, Australia, creating a unique arena within the precinct.

Completed in 2022, the design has significantly enhanced the arrival experience for visitors by modernising the VIP entrance with high-grade interiors, along with elegant lounge spaces and a roof-top deck and bar overlooking the city skyline.

New interior spaces include an upgraded player’s entry with an immersive light tunnel experience that creates a flexible space through colour-changing lights.

Included in the precinct’s redevelopment master plan was the design of Margaret Court Arena, which Populous co-designed with NH Architecture in 2015.

The circa AU1$ billion Melbourne Park Redevelopment works were completed across three stages over 10 years to establish the site as one the best sport and entertainment precincts in the world, ensuring the Australian Open remains a major events icon well into the future.
