5 mins with... Hare & Klein

Sydney home

Hare & Klein Pty Ltd formed in 1988, is an experienced and respected team of interior designers committed to creating original and individual interiors of quality that stand the test of time.

Hare & Klein have been a valuable client of Candana’s for almost two decades and continue to design and specify some of the most beautiful bathrooms we have had the pleasure of working on.

Meryl Hare and the team at Hare & Klein took some time out to answer our little questionnaire and came up with some fantastic answers...

Describe your design aesthetic in 5 words…
Timeless, individual, practical, elegant and textural.

Which bathroom brand are you most likely to specify for your clients?
It is project dependent, but Boyd Alternatives and Gessi are favourites.

Bellevue Hill residence


Double Bay residence


What inspires you to create beautiful spaces?
Every bathroom is a blank canvas and challenge to create something beautiful and special within the design language of the overall project. The daily rituals of bathing have the potential to become an enriching experience in a well designed space.

Beach house

Who are some international designers/architects that you admire?
Christian Liagre, Piet Boon, Andree Putman.

North Coast beach house

If you could design anyone’s bathroom (past or present), whose would it be? And what would you do with it?
Cleopatra! A bathroom open to the sky, with a generous round bath on a high pedestal in the centre, carved out of limestone, filled with milk and attended by a team of eunuchs! (lucky Cleopatra, she seems to be a popular choice for our designers! -Candana)

Vaucluse residence

What is your favourite bathroom product? Why?
Our team of designers loves the Gessi Goccia silver or black finished basin. It’s contemporary but voluptuous.


We would like to thank Meryl Hare and her team for taking the time to share their insight on beautiful spaces and fabulous bathrooms.
