The multi-award-winning Oikos (pronounced eekos) is a sculptural creation that compliments the rugged precipice on which it perches. Extraordinary external angles enhance a dramatic, open-plan interior. Inside, smartly designed spaces with staggering outlooks are, from every angle, framed by breathtaking picture windows peeking out onto gum trees and the twinkling lights of Hepburn Springs and Daylesford.
Architects: Brett Robertson, David Nicholson
