Architecture
as art

Oikos AT BREAKNECK GORGE IS A BOLD, ANGULAR STATEMENT: AN IMAGINATIVE DWELLING WITH AN INSPIRING AESTHETIC.

 

Oikos (pronounced eekos) is set on the edge of the gorge. This ridge-hugging modern structure is designed as a sculptural form in which to dwell. Oikos celebrates the beauty in nature, with open expanses of glass on three sides displaying the majesty of its surrounds.

Be seduced by the charm of Oikos: expansive viewing deck, glass-framed daybed, designer furniture, freestanding black polished cement bath and an architecturally inspired garden.

Time spent at Oikos is a stylish, romantic and invigorating experience.
