299 King sits on the perimeter of the prominent Flagstaff Gardens. It becomes a landmark within the park precinct, providing a thoughtful and elegant backdrop to multiple vistas from within the park.
The rich history of the site provides a romantic narrative for interior spaces. Tribes of the Kulin Nation, European settlers and Chinese gold diggers are some of the local stories woven into meaningful, feel good spaces. A supernatural theme runs throughout the shared amenities. A light, restrained colour palette and a natural material selection allows one to connect with the subtleness of form and texture. Nature is evoked through split face stone surfaces, while bespoke metal elements make reference to the search for precious metals in the significant gold rush era.
