Oyster Bay House | Couvaras Architects

Relaxed luxury waterfront home designed to capture views. The landscape is slowly but spectacularly revealed as you move through the site and the house, with every window framing a view of the waterfront, river, sky or trees. 

Two Tease Architectural Hardware had the opportunity to collaborate and be part of this amazing project. Oyster Bay House sits on a steep headland, looking across the Georges River. The landscape is slowly but spectacularly revealed as you move through the site and the house, with every window framing a view of the waterfront, river, sky or trees. The house needed to see them through their retirement years and provide space and privacy for their grown-up children to move back in on occasion. The house is set over 3 levels, with a separate guest suite. This means the couple (and their guests) can enjoy sweeping views of the river and gardens from every room.
