Marking a very Good Friday by introducing ‘Clay Cliff Point’, our winning entry for Parramatta City Council’s Architectural Design Excellence Competition, located at Harris Park.
We have endeavoured to create a unique visual identity for the development by connecting its external aesthetic to the cultural, ecological and artistic heritage of the site. The tower component of our design adopts an ochre-coloured core built from terracotta pigmented precast concrete panels mixed with clear vision glazing. Referencing abstracted white lines and a figure-ground effect, our design overlays a facade screen above the earthy base. While contrasting with the inner skin, this secondary layer also has practical applications, sheltering residents from the elements and external noise.
In introducing this design, we acknowledge the traditional custodians of this land – the Burramattagal people of the Darug nation.
Wishing you all a wonderful Easter break!
