105 Phillip Street
Parramatta, Sydney, New South Wales, Australia

Located in the Parramatta central business district, 105 Phillip St is a 12 level commercial office tower, with a 6 Star Green Star certification, forming the new headquarters of a NSW Government Agency.

The location is a short walk to the civic centre, Parramatta Transport Interchange and adjacent to the Parramatta Ferry Terminal, providing excellent access to public transport and pedestrian links to the CBD. Built over an existing carpark, the building reestablishes a retail streetscape along Phillip Street, enhancing Parramatta city centre with retail and commercial functions harmonising with the existing public domain.

The facade design has been developed to respond to the building orientation, reinforce the podium design through contrasting materials and architectural language and relate to the context. The building massing is separated into a fully glazed office tower at high level and a more solid podium at ground level, which anchors the building and provides a human scale to the streetscape.

On the tower facade, vertical fins provide shading to the north whilst vertical spandrels reduce thermal heat loading on the east and west facades. At the podium, the colonnade design and masonry material reflects the scale of the adjacent buildings to the east.

A landscaped roof with an extensive outdoor terrace has been provided at the top of the tower for staff events, barbecues, yoga, and sporting functions.

The building interior is punctuated by a series of atria to the north, allowing for light penetration into the tenancy and providing connectivity between the floors for staff members. A side core has been located to the south facade, creating an uninterrupted office space to the north and allowing for maximum flexibility for the fitout.

Bates Smart seamlessly integrated the design of the Government Agency fitout into the architecture of the base building.
