First time offered, featured in GRAND DESIGNS AUSTRALIA & GREEN MAGAZINE, this award-winning architectural home is one that will delight the senses. Ocean Shores House has been carefully designed and built with sustainability in mind. This thoughtful response to a unique terrain, by Brisbane-based architects Atelier Chen Hung, uses a balance of natural tones, textures and modest materials to achieve a minimalist style dwelling situated Close to the Beautiful Brunswick Heads and Byron Bay.

The space
A harmonious 3-bedroom/1-bathroom home with plenty of room for the kids to play, and in close proximity to beautiful Northern NSW beaches, Ocean Shores House is also the perfect family-friendly holiday escape.

Ocean Shores House is located on the ridge of an elevated coastline, from the seamless blending of indoor outdoor spaces, to the natural light and gentle airflow, this house was designed to connect you to the surrounding landscape. The home literally ‘opens up’ to the outside through custom-made sliding doors, providing instant access to the front lawn and beautifully landscaped garden.

The home has been purpose built to allow for cool ocean breezes throughout - if you open all windows , doors and sliders this will allow the airflow to go through the property without the need of airconditioning.


You know you’ve stepped into your own private coastal retreat from the moment you open the gate. As you walk through the landscaped garden stop for a second and take in the distinct architectural lines of the exterior and notice the way the timber decking runs along the front of the living spaces, drawing you into the home.

A distinct feature of this cleverly designed home is the way the materials are primarily used in their raw state to achieve an environmentally friendly + sustainable house that has managed to be both unique and homely. No paint has been used in the home, giving the building a simpler, more natural aesthetic. Notice the tones and textures of the materials used, with these becoming the focus rather than colour.

Every aspect of this home is hand crafted and materials were selected by a team of quality trades. The outstanding workmanship is evident in every space, adding to the nurturing and familiar vibe of the home. You feel like you’ve stepped into the place you were always meant to be.

Built in a well-established, family-friendly, residential north coast town of Ocean Shores, and in close proximity to the enviable Northern NSW beaches and seaside towns of New Brighton, Brunswick Heads and Byron Bay, this home is located perfectly for you to be able to enjoy all that the amazing region has to offer.


This well-thought-out home has been specifically designed to engage all of your senses whilst making the most of the land it is on.

The low living areas downstairs are positioned with ease of living in mind. fans are also in the bedrooms. Wet areas are all contained to the one area of the house, and the bedrooms are at the front. There is a cosy + functional living area, where you can admire the outside spaces from the built-in lounge with beautifully upholstered seats or sink back into it as you kick back and watch your favourite movie/show on the new big television.

A galley style kitchen opens out to the dining area, which then opens out to the living spaces. All of which provides uninterrupted, elevated views over the ocean to the North and the lush backdrop of the garden in the South.

With sustainability in mind, the flooring was carefully laid inside to allow a very natural airflow into the house. This clever design + building technique allows the cool summer breezes to flow through. It’s so good in fact that no air-conditioning is required. Solar power with a battery also provides renewable power all day and into the night.

** The house being located in a very central location, Tweed Valley Way is located near to the house at the rear. Occasionally there may be traffic noise, but the property was purpose built with high quality insulation and the bedrooms are situated at the front of the property to minimise the impact of noise in these spaces.

Upstairs is the Mezzanine, a lovely retreat with a desk for you to work at if you require. It features a new lounge with a beautiful hand-crafted floor to ceiling bookcase. Filled with the hosts’ carefully selected books,which you can borrow for your stay, please leave them at the property for others to enjoy!

this is a space to truly relax in. And if you climb up the hand built timber staircase there is a hidden sliding window that frames and perfectly captures the world-famous Byron Bay Lighthouse.

The owners deliberately designed the house with one bathroom and toilet, to conserve space, water and materials.

Please note: Ocean Shores House is situated on a hill at the most easterly point in Australia. It has been designed to make full use of the abundant ocean breezes. It was a conscious desicion to leave out the air-conditioning.

Opening the sashless windows from the carport and the staircase window will create a draught along the hall/breezeway.

Opening the dining room windows will strengthen this airflow and opening the bedroom sliding doors will maximise airflow though the house.

The upstairs window can be left open in all but the stongest storms.

In Winter, every room can be isolated from the breezeway by simply closing the windows and doors. There is one oil heater provided if required.
