32 Smith Street is one of the most sustainable commercial office towers in the Parramatta CBD.

Its strong biophilic response is highlighted by an environmentally shaped passive shading system, a ground-level ‘Urban Room’ public space, sky terraces and a tree-lined sky deck, and the inclusion of floor-to-ceiling windows to optimise natural light.

Landscaping achieves a net zero loss of tree canopy with living green and foliage occupying all sky terraces. Stairwells, bathrooms and end-of-trip facilities access views and natural light. The elevated car park is designed to convert into future office space.

The simple material palette of the tower celebrates the minimal use of applied cladding, which reduces structure and wind impact on the public domain. The project’s dedication to sustainability targets a 5 Star NABERS rating.
