Drenched in sunlight and with views over the treetops to Sydney Harbour, this home had obvious charms – and the owners wanted to enhance them. They turned to collaborat­ive duo Alexandra Mason of Studio AEM and Warren Au of Studio Gestalt to strengthen the link between the dining/living area and the terrace. Conjuring what Alexandra describes as a “relaxed, breezy resort style”, the challenge was to connect the spaces while giving each an individual look and identity. Taking cues from the existing sandstone fireplace and teak-lined ceiling, they opted for a calming, neutral palette combined with smart, space-defining furniture. The result? A look that is “timeless and contempora­ry yet opulent and refined”, says Alexandra.
