It’s no surprise Sydney’s hip inner-city suburb of Waterloo has people queuing up to live among its leafy streets. 

Surrounded by the likes of Surry Hills and Darlinghurst, the roads are lined with trendy cafes, cool bars and eclectic shops, while the city’s CBD is conveniently within walking distance.

Being so close to Sydney’s centre, most looking to move to the area are after a great position with views of the iconic skyline, however, of course, that can be difficult to come by.

That’s what makes a luxurious new development nestled in the heart of Waterloo so unique.

Not only is ‘Bourke & Philip’ surrounded by the laid-back, village culture Australia is renowned for, but each apartment is north-facing, which means every resident has panoramic views of the CBD.


Another difficult feat, but somehow the brains behind the project, Britely, have managed to secure the highly sought-after spot, and on top of that, ensure the area to the north of the apartment block can’t be build out, meaning there’s no chance a few years down the track that view will be obstructed.

This dream combination appeals to both owner-occupiers and investors, who want to be sure it will remain a worthwhile investment down the track.

The boutique size of the development will see just 40 apartments built, with a selection of one, two or three bedroom apartments on offer.

And with award-winning architects Environa Studio at the helm, alongside interior designers DKO, the result is a sophisticated blend of modern elegance meets inner-city chic.

“We wanted to create a seamless experience between the architecture and interiors, From the external walkways through to the joinery pieces, its about connecting form, function and materiality,” explains DKO’s Michael Drescher.

The open-plan living, dining and kitchen area connects through to the expansive private terraces with sliding doors, designed to create the ideal entertainment space framed by second-to-none views as the backdrop.


While DKO has managed to use the floor plan to create a feeling of space, rare for an apartment development moments from the city.

But if you feel like stretching your legs, Sydney’s biggest public park, Centennial Park is nearby, as are a number of public transport options, meaning it’s virtually impossible to feel isolated from any point of Sydney.

However considering the prime location, with pretty much everything you need at your doorstep, it will be hard to find a reason to leave the buzzing inner-city precinct.
