Charles arrives in Parramatta
Stanisic Architects is pleased to be announced as the winners of the Charles Street Design Competition. This mixed use project is a 48 storey tower with 12 storey street wall at the corner of Charles and Macquarie Streets, Parramatta. It comprises retail, health services, child care centre and 381 residential apartments.
The architecture of the tower responds primarily to three design concepts: the interface of the buildings with the open space at street level; the response to the wider urban and landscape setting and views; and built form articulation through surface treatment and controlled variation. The building adopts a ‘hybrid form’ of tower, street walls and horizontal slots to interface with the ground, the street, the city, the river, the sun and the sky.
