What We Do

The architectural design approach is to produce buildings as 'dwellings' for clients to fully 'inhabit'. Residential dwellings in particular require a high degree of design expertise to fully realize a building as a 'dwelling' in the most comprehensive sense to enrich the owners life.

Each project undertaken by Oikos Architects is a uniquely designed solution that fulfils firstly the clients' needs and requirements and usually exceeds them, secondly, respects the surrounding urban, heritage and landscape context as well as being an appropriate solution economically for the client and ecologically sustainable to the community as a whole.

Most importantly, design solutions must also be capable of being approved by local Councils, particularly in the difficult inner city areas where adjoining neighbour amenity and Council's controls and heritage considerations are sometimes a major constraint.
