King & Phillip, Galileo's $320+ m residential development is set to become a truly unique residence located in one of Sydney's most significant heritage precincts bounded by St James Anglican Church, the Supreme Court of NSW, Hyde Park Barracks and St Mary's Cathedral. With apartments in quality CBD locations increasingly scarce, King & Phillip represents an opportunity for discerning buyers to secure a once-in-a-generation address. King & Phillip's striking design has been created by the award-winning architects FJMT, positioning it as a true Sydney CBD icon. Idyllically positioned on Hyde Park and amongst Sydney's most principal historical buildings, the location marries unparalleled city living with scenic parkland surrounds, paying homage to classic architectural principles using a dynamic and contemporary approach. A beautiful and generous colonnade complements the heritage setting through proportions, composition and the use of natural sandstone. The lofty and welcoming lobby is a more private extension of the colonnade, a warm and quiet space, embel- lished with a series of rich timber ceiling vaults in complex geometry patterns. TPAA3700_E01_Phillip_St_Hero copy The 92-metre high building includes 26 floors, 23 dedicated to the 104 luxurious residences, comprising a variety of 34 con- figurations that offer something unique to even the most discerning tastes. King & Phillip offers both the elegance and excite- ment of living in the heart of one of the world's greatest cities with the sanctuary of a warm and sophisticated retreat you can call home. The magnificent aesthetic appeal and timeless quality of King & Phillip's exterior continues seamlessly throughout the superior quality interiors of the home. The use of bronze tones provides alluring warmth to the finishes while maintaining a sense of continuity between the exteriors and within.

Careful consideration has been given to the three interior palettes inspired by the surrounds of St James, Barracks and Fig. Classically inspired Australian timbers and natural stone afford a true sense of individuality. Kitchens are elegant, spacious and fitted out with high quality appliances. Soft, curved forms are juxtaposed against rectilinear geometry and soft, indirect lighting creates ambiance and enhances the refined materials. Bathrooms are impressive, with oversized stone wall panels portraying the unique properties that only natural elements can bring. Vanities are finished with bespoke circular basins and a large circular mirror creates a central focus, appearing to float from the wall through the soft, continuous circular lighting set behind it.   TPAA3700_IN05_Typical_Bathroom copy Flooring throughout the homes has been selected with both durability and refined aesthetics in mind. Natural timber has been chosen for the living rooms, offering a grand sense of space, while bedrooms are dressed in luxurious plush carpets. By design, King & Phillip welcomes in natural daylight that allows the stones and woods to emit their natural colours. The light changes with the time of day and season, allowing the character of natural materials to evolve in response. Perforated screens are specifically designed to provide privacy, ventilation and to filter daylight. They cast beautiful varied pat- terns of dappled light upon the floors and walls throughout the apartment as the sun's rays move across the facÃ?§ades. From cafes and couture to promenades and parklands, the diverse lifestyle offerings that surround King & Phillip provide un- told adventures that await daily discovery. All of the dynamic lifestyle delights that unfurl from Sydney's CBD and beyond are easily discoverable via a leisurely stroll from home.
Shopping ventures are virtually endless with a perfect marriage of the old and new between the treasure trove that is The Strand Arcade through to the ultra modern offerings of Westfield Sydney and Pitt Street shopping precinct. With entertainment destinations including Cockle Bay, Woollomooloo, Barangaroo and Circular Quay nearby and a cavalcade of fine dinning op- tions within the neighbourhood, foodies will be spoiled for choice. At the heart of Sydney's most historic precinct sits the nation's oldest parkland " a sprawling 16-hectare oasis that is waiting to be enjoyed. Spanning across a north and south precinct, Hyde Park never fails to delight with an offering of stunning flora that evolves with the seasons and an array of breathtaking historic monuments including the impeccably detailed Archibald Foun- tain, ANZAC Memorial and Pool of Reflection. King and Phillip will hold a VIP Launch on Saturday September 16. Construction will commence in Q3 2017 with completion expected mid 2020.
