Parramatta City building design

One Parramatta Square, internal levels

With environmental sustainability front of mind, the Parramatta City campus at 169 Macquarie Street has been designed to achieve a 5 Star Green Star rating for sustainable building design, construction and/or performance.

The building's distinct features include:

  • a striking triangular atrium, which will draw light into the centre of the building
  • inter-floor connectivity, creating a vertical campus
  • a roof terrace with a breakout area and views to the north and east
  • retail frontages and a two-storey colonnade on the Smith Street (eastern) side
  • a commercial lobby on the western side
  • a triple-height lobby on the Macquarie Street side, which will be flanked by a timber screen and the glass façade of an elevator.

The design is a result of a competition run by Parramatta City Council, which announced Architectus as the winner – a company with a strong track record in architecture, interiors, sustainable design and urban planning.
