Array at 1 Eden Park Drive
Macquarie Park’s newest commercial office building, Array at 1 Eden Park Drive, is located in the Eden Park Precinct of the Macquarie Park business district. It has close access to public transport including the Metro station located on the corner of Waterloo Road and Lane Cove Road.
Responding to the constrained urban context of the site, views to the north and eastern edges of the building have been maximised over existing buildings on Eden Park Drive. Abundant access to daylight is achieved through a parametric modelled façade solution, striking the optimum balance between performance and amenity to deliver an innovative and environmentally responsive façade.
The sites floor plans have been stretched over the buildings east-west access to maximise views to the north whilst allowing greater sunlight control. Carefully considered materiality ensures views and connections to the public areas of Eden Park Drive are embraced, whilst providing shade and protecting the internal office spaces.
Clear full-height galzing to the east connects the deep western portions of the building to the central precinct, welcoming in the morning sun deep into the office space. Landscaped outdoor terraces at levels 6 and 7 benefit the tenants and reduce building heatload on the roof areas.
Array at 1 Eden Park Drive has been designed to achieve a 5.5 Star NABERS rating, 5 Star Green Star rating and WELL Gold certification, achieved through an integrated design approach with early adoption of holistic, whole-systems thinking. The project team worked collaboratively with the building owner to future proof the value of the asset through embedded climate responsive elements and features.
