Contemporary Multi-level residence set high above the street with commanding views over Oyster Bay. The facade is defined by a subtle yet distinct curvature wrapped with high performance glass to capture full 180 degree views. The building has been designed to hug the landscape and take advantage of the natural contoured landform. A double height atrium over the entry connects the ground floor entertainment area with the first floor living dining, kitchen and sunken lounge area.
