Valentine Place, Parramatta

Our design re-imagines an engaging and inviting Valentine Avenue while presenting a refined and precise marker to the Parramatta skyline.

We have devised a podium which engages the street as a pedestrian experience through the addition of a street cafe and a unique focal point in the office lobby artwall. Beyond these actors the podium harmonises the existing and proposed car parking levels, adding visual interest to the streetscape.

Above the podium the office building defines the southern gateway to the CBD.As an urban marker the building is a series of layered volumes describing occupation patterns in the horizontal and movement patterns in the vertical to provide a strong visual point of difference.

The tower speaks of its time and is classically composed in three horizontally cast elements defined by two recessed client reception levels to describe a distinct urban form on the Parramatta skyline.
