5 Parramatta Square
Community And Civic PlaceContinue
Set To Become Australia's Next Iconic Building
Created by a consortium of French firm Manuelle Gautrand Architecture and Australian firms Design Inc and Lacoste + Stevenson, this striking design encapsulates and extends above the historic Town Hall with a cantilevered structure providing space for the Council Chambers.
5 Parramatta Square is a state-of-the art glass construction, featuring a wave-shaped façade of crystalline blocks. The centrepiece of the building is an arrangement of transparent glass that gradually rises to the north-east with a large LED screen for public art projections, helping to define Parramatta as a Smart City.
Covering six-storeys, this $50 million project will have a Gross Floor Area (GFA) of approximately 8000sqm.
Creating an inviting and open space for the community to explore the numerous public facilities, 5 Parramatta Square is set to become the civic heart of Parramatta.
Spaces That Excite and Delight.
The recalibrated plans for the Public Domain are the result of an in-depth community consultation process undertaken in October 2015, where residents and stakeholders provided valued feedback on a Draft Concept Design. That initial feedback, combined with considerable milestones in the design and planning of the buildings in Parramatta Square, has helped form the Enhanced Concept Design that is now available for public comment.
The public domain, housing a new state-of-the-art library, and civic centre, is set to be used by thousands of visitors, workers & residents every day, benefitting greatly from Smart City strategies & become an integrated transit hub.
This innovative and energizing environment is being designed to create an enjoyable place to meet, interact, socialise, shop and work.
