Rising from Parramattaʼs most significant site on Macquarie Street, V by Crown is a hub of activity featuring a residential, retail and commercial focus which heralds a new era in the Parramatta's urban revitalisation.
The projects finds harmony between an urban scale and the fine detailing of the resort style that Taylor Brammer Landscape Architects and Crown Developments are renown for. Extensive use of natural materials in forms that are inspired by nature assist to create a marquee development within the Parramatta CBD. The focus of the pool areas dynamic and soothing environment is centred around the curvilinear timber screen, the shimmering sky blue pool and the bridges over water linking the library, gymnasium, spa and other community facilities to the outdoor environments.
Fine grained timber and stone is featured throughout which is offset by lush tropical specimen planting which has been further developed with Crown since the successes of Top Ryde City Living.
The project celebrates the development of Parramatta through its integration of local heritage elements and a strong link to Parramatta Park, a world heritage listed item. This approach when combined with the refined detail of the public and private spaces sets a benchmark for Parramatta and greater Western Sydney region.
