The Power Of Three

A collaboration between three leading architects – Tony Caro Architecture, Aleksander Design Group and Order Architects – has won the Design Excellence Competition for a key Parramatta site at 5-7 Parkes Street.

Dyldam undertook the Design Excellence Competition following a 2 year investment in the planning process to maximise the site’s design and social outcomes.

The Design Jury panel comprised Olivia Hyde, Director Design Excellence, NSW Government Architects Office, Russell Olsson, Director, Olsson & Associates Architects (chair) and Simon Parsons, Practice Leader of PTW.

The Design Contest Jury applauded the excellent calibre of all entries, whilst noting of the TCA/Aleksander/Order collaboration:

“This proposal is comprised of slender tower forms capped by open, coloured frames, creating a silhouetted skyline, particularly when viewed from a distance.  It addresses the park with slender proportioned balconies in the lower levels and fine splayed columns with pointed tops in the terrace pergolas.”
