Oyster Bay Beauty

The Brief

Our brief from the client was primarily focused around upgrading what was a large property with limited functionality into a high specification home for a large family. Additional requirements involved a rearrangement of space, an addition of a parent’s wing, the complete upgrading all finishes and the introduction of an architectural staircase within a light well in the centre of the house. The brief also included the gardens to be formalised and the dilapidated pool area to be completely modernised with the addition of a cabana, outdoor kitchen and fire pit with the boat shed also converted to a gym.

The Solution

MATTBUILD were able to meet our clients brief and deliver a premium new home. We completed a total internal and external renovation with a two level rear extension. This allowed for all the additional space the client required and completely modernised the old home.
