The building’s scalloped façade comprises shimmering cast concrete and glass, which is animated by bays that appear to peel away from the building and change as sunlight moves across them throughout the day. The alternating geometry of the façade and windows create approximately 190 unique floor plans for the building’s 481 homes. The custom design of the building’s thickened exterior creates an additional living space on the inside of most residences. They create inhabitable window bays of varying depths inside the homes, providing built-in seating that allows residents to take in the city, water and park views.

As the tower tops out, it’s great to see the façade come to life. It’s made up of a series of bay window types that collectively create a dynamic sweep on the exterior while providing individual, unique experiences from inside the homes,” says Jeanne Gang, Founding Principal of Studio Gang.

Michaelis Boyd Associates designed the building’s interiors with refined materials and impeccable details. The firm aimed to evoke Brooklyn’s creative energy in the amenity spaces through the use of a colorful and eclectic mix of furnishings, materiality, and finishes. 11 Hoyt’s residences – which range from studios to four-bedrooms – combine open-plan living, the warmth, and craftsmanship of Brooklyn’s traditional brownstones and a modern sensibility. The property welcomes residents with a private driveway with porte-cochere and motor court, large sun-filled oculi, and a grand lobby with 29-foot high ceilings.
