Nestled within Sydney’s heritage listed legal precinct, King & Phillip Residences benchmark a new typology for residential city living. The client’s brief was to capture the empty nest purchaser with epicurean design tastes within a distinct architectural expression that matches a unique location nestled in between the CBD’s heritage, business, cultural and retail sectors. Our design concept draws from the rich idiom of colonial stone masonry, lofty geometric forms, and layered tapestry of handcrafted materials. The building consists of three main elements: the ‘jewel box’, podium and tower.
