GOLD PIN Free­mans Bay Residence by Hare In­te­ri­ors

Hare In­te­ri­ors was chal­lenged with con­vert­ing an Auck­land of­fice block into an apart­ment — with­out chang­ing its ba­sic struc­ture and while also mak­ing the most of its 180-de­gree sea views. Con­versely, be­cause the client works from home, the new residence also needed to in­cor­po­rate an of­fice space within its lim­ited open-plan liv­ing area.

The de­sign process be­gan with a pal­ette of lux­u­ri­ous and re­fined fin­ishes in muted, warm metallics and unas­sum­ing yet rich tones. In the kitchen, a caramel onyx is used on the is­land, along with a va­ri­ety of brass ac­cents and nat­u­ral tim­ber. The liv­ing space was max­imised by re­design­ing the kitchen and ex­tend­ing it along the en­tire south­ern wall of the dwelling through the din­ing and liv­ing area, and a looped-brass screen was de­vel­oped to pro­vide pri­vacy for the of­fice but al­low it to re­main open. The east­ern wall fea­tures an in­te­grated tech­nol­ogy hub fin­ished in brass and lime­stone that houses the work­ing parts of the home.
