Oikos Retreat by Robert Nichol and Sons

Set on a startlingly beautiful elevation on this sprawling Breakneck Gorge property, not far outside the tourist hotspot of Hepburn Springs (Australia), Oikos was designed as an indulgent retreat from the city.

Evoking the red centre of this great southern land, it’s a sculptural creation that both complements and disappears into the rugged, precipices on which it perches. Inside, smartly designed spaces are, from every angle, framed by stunning picture windows peeking out onto gum trees. From the sleek soaking bath to the cowhide daybed, every aspect of Oikos is conceived as a peaceful surrender.
