mckimm is a holistic residential design practice. For many years, we have worked to cultivate a love of home-life in developing beautiful, sophisticated and liveable spaces through the seamless integration of design, project management and construction at one touch point. Our passion and experience yields transformative results – contemporary homes that better the lives of those who experience them every day.


mckimm was established by Nick McKimm over 25 years ago. Nick’s appreciation for detailing and architecture, complimented by quality construction, has seen mckimm continue to grow and it is now renowned for being one of Melbourne’s most accomplished residential design and construction practices.


Over the past ten years, the design component of the company has seen substantial growth and today offers a full residential design service. The construction knowledge and expertise, combined with Principle Designer Lorenzo Garizio’s amazing design talent and textural aesthetic results in contemporary homes characterized by meticulous detailing and careful deliberation.


mckimm’s collaborative process allows for the design and construction teams to work as one with the client to achieve outstanding results.

Introspective architecture, vast expanses of glass, solid cantilevers and striking planes are mckimm signatures. Lorenzo’s influence can be seen in the honest material expression celebrating the intrinsic rawness of concrete, steel and timber.


Central to every project is the notion of function and connectivity. mckimm spaces are beautiful, yet every zone is individually designed and subsequently used to full capacity. Busy families, entertaining zones, home office spaces, children’s retreats, well considered and integrated pools, luxury retreat master bedrooms, custom designed cellars; all created with flow as a priority.


Quality construction, project management methodology and skilled craftsmanship define all of our work.  Our experience, relationships and efficiency of handling the project at one touch point see us deliver exceptional projects. mckimm homes look beautiful and work beautifully.
