Breakneck Gorge Oikos is a bold statement home which is both striking in its rural setting yet surprisingly sympathetic to the landscape. The strong angular design creates a distinct profile, with the copper cladding anchoring the home to the landscape and surrounding 18-hectare private Breakneck Gorge property.
“We were engaged to design a short-term accommodation dwelling in an existing and very competitive marketplace. It was decided that the architecture would be the point of difference here, that we create a dwelling that stands out from the current offerings and connects with its location to provide a memorable experience.” – Robert Nichol and Sons
Designed by architects Robert Nichol and Sons it is evident they delivered upon the brief – and the design community has taken note. This sculptural creation has its fair share of awards and accolades: 2019 International Design Awards Architecture Category, International Architecture 2018 MasterPrize – Small Architecture Category and finalist in the 2018 Premier’s design awards. This is just a few of what is a long list of accolades. A stay at Breakneck Gorge Oikos is a glimpse into the aesthetics of bold, architecturally inspired living.
“The 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 night lights of Hepburn Springs and Daylesford. The power of these remarkable outlooks reveals itself in the stunning bedroom, with two huge windows tempting you to leave the blinds open and sleep in starlight. A jaw-dropping bathroom is dominated by an egg-like, black cast concrete bathtub, it’s perfect for soaking away your cares. The hero feature in the living area is a cowhide daybed ensconced in a picture window, the ideal spot in which to lose yourself. Floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors peel back, spilling out onto the spotted gum deck.” – Breakneck Gorge Oikos
We don’t often come across beautiful and functional one-bedroom holiday homes. It’s a perfect place for a romantic weekend away – privacy and seclusion in a beautiful regional setting.
