Following an exciting start to what promises to be an action-packed year for Hare + Klein, we’ve just added a few extra residential and renovation projects from 2018 to our website….
Each of these three projects were the result of a fantastic collaboration with our clients and partners.
Nestled in a beautiful bay on Sydney Harbour, this new home is a stunning architectural statement, in keeping with it’s setting, both on the street and the water.
The interior is a highly detailed, graceful design with a subtle interplay of proportion and materials resulting in a tranquil and refined home. The palette is restrained and sophisticated with elegant features. A deep charcoal stucco wall brings contrast to the interior as does the staircase as it winds through the three levels, creating a solid core.
This was another successful collaboration with the architects and builder that we worked with on Peninsula House.

Perched on the very top of the cliff overlooking the Pacific Ocean, this home has recently had a major renovation. The concepts for the interior spaces, selection of materials and furniture were executed by the Hare + Klein team, documentation by BSA.
It’s stunning position presented both challenges, in terms of the harsh environment – and opportunities, to take advantage of the magnificent views. The vast double volume living room presented the biggest challenge – to create a warm and comfortable multipurpose room with three focal points – the view, fireplace and TV. This involved a complex floor-plan and an array of textures and furnishings that deliver a cohesive functional and comfortable room.

This property was a 1970’s project home – severely outdated and run down. Having worked with this client previously, we understood their aesthetic – their love of beautiful artefacts and art, deep colour and natural textures, so the palette evolved from that prior knowledge. We needed to take the existing furniture into account in the floor-plan and create both communal and intimate spaces, within the budget provided.
We took the limited rectangular floor plan and extruded additional spaces to make comfortable, well-proportioned areas that would fit their existing furnishings. The new vertical cladding to the entire structure creates cohesion, extending up beyond the original roofline, as a parapet, to conceal the pitched roofline, giving it a contemporary appearance.
Quote from the owners ‘The final outcome is a sustainable, solar-powered home that is a pleasure to live in throughout the year, warm in winter and cool in summer with an inner spirit that nourishes the soul’.
