Design Intent

Basic mckimm principles of orientation, breezeways and thermal mass were fundamental to the design of the Hoyt and allowed for natural light from the northerly aspect to flood the main living areas.

The architectural composition of the residence surrounds the outdoor pool in a u-shape formation, while floor to ceiling glazing dissolves the boundary between indoors and outdoors.


Enabling connection between the three levels of the home, an off-form concrete wall that carries the timber treads of the staircase is softened by the insertion of intricate copper tubes to the detailing of the form work.

The master suite, a further bathroom and two bedrooms, each containing their own walk-in-robe, are all found on the upper level of the home and offer individual finishes and zones for each family member. Underground is for entertaining with a bar, wine store, media zone and powder room offering a retreat for the owners to accommodate friends and family.


The Hoyt was designed for a young family that enjoy an entertainer’s lifestyle. Kitchen and living areas open to the outdoors via sliding glass panels, facilitating the internal, external connection and allowing the main living zones to blend seamlessly into one. The effective layout and combination of finishes at the Hoyt residence create a contemporary home that provides the perfect balance of beauty, fun and function.
