Location: Parramatta, Australia
Status: Ongoing

The architectural concept originates inextricably from its location right in the heart of Parramatta. Drawing inspiration from the urban context, heritage, and the timeless New South Wales landscape, our proposal meets the challenge of shaping the transformation of Parramatta. Once we guaranteed the integration of the building with the city and open spaces, we sought a building aesthetic inspired by the local, historical and natural context to develop the most sustainable, integrated design solution.

Our aim was to design a tower that could not be anywhere else in the world as it belongs to its location, the City of Parramatta. A tower is defined by its verticality. We searched for inspiration within the New South Wales landscape for a characteristic Australian element that could help us express this verticality; an element that has to establish a link rooted within its placement in the heart of Parramatta. We found our inspiration in the eucalyptus tree.
