Project summary

King and Phillip Residences has been carefully and deftly designed to respond to a site of great significance within the City of Sydney acknowledging both its civic and cultural responsibility, and simultaneously delivering high quality residences. It is positioned within one of the most intact colonial heritage precincts in the world, and at the junction of the city and parkland.

The project respectfully references the city’s great colonial heritage with a new modern application of form, shape and materiality. Values of environmental amenity, public accessibility and sustainability are exhibited, as well as an important public art punctuation point for Reconciliation. The result is a new type of high quality residential building that reflects an integration of life, work, art and culture for city dwellers. Each of the building’s inhabitants and visitors enjoys intimate views of their special surrounds, reinforcing their perception of place.

Shortlist – Residential Architecture – Multiple Housing

It has been a joy seeing our King & Phillip Residences occupied by the owners and visitors. The residents always reflect on the quality and distinction of their living experience in this building, from the awe inspiring experience entering the building via the beautiful vaulted colonnade and entry foyer, to their movement through intimate lobby and common spaces, and into their apartments with their amazing views over Hyde Park and beyond. The quality of the design, space planning and finishes has elevated their appreciation for high quality, high rise living in the true heart of the city.
