It had al­ways en­joyed a jaw-drop­ping view, but a clever plan by Meryl Hare and Dim­ity Chitty of Hare+Klein has breathed new life into the liv­ing area of this Syd­ney home. The pair re­designed the space to cre­ate two dis­tinct re­lax­ation zones: one out­ward-fac­ing to take in the spec­tac­u­lar sea views; and this set­ting (fore­ground), cen­tred around the new fire­place and TV. Tim­ber boards line the ceil­ing, echo­ing the ex­ist­ing bas­ketweave par­quetry, while soft linen cur­tains span the width and height of the glaz­ing. “We never re­ally used this room un­til it was ren­o­vated. Now we use it all the time,” says owner Bar­bara. “Filled with sun­shine, it is com­fort­able, invit­ing and warm – a beau­ti­ful spot to watch whales swim by.”
