Lila Restaurant

Located in a renovated 1920’s building, Lila’s existing assets (high ceilings with wood trusses, original terrazzo floors, and large transom windows.) were leveraged to create this causal, but stylish Main Street dining destination. 

The meaning of Lila is loosely translated as fun, whimsical and creative. An open kitchen, clad in white subway tiles, bar seating with concrete counter tops, banquettes and tables done in a modern-rustic style, a crystal chandelier, and exposed mechanicals serve to re-enforce the theme.

Ed Smith Stadium

Hoyt Architects was the Architect of Record for the expansion of the Major League Spring Training Facilities for the Baltimore Orioles. Combining Sarasota’s rich architectural history with a classic ballpark feel, new concourses anchor the new facade which engages the street, energizing the neighborhood just outside of downtown Sarasota. Increased concessions, picnic areas, offices,and a patio area with bistro-type seating beyond the left-field wall are new amenities for the fans to enjoy.

State Street - Eating House & Cocktails

Hoyt Architects was the Architect for this interior build out. Previously a bakery, only the outer walls, ceiling, and floor remain in tact. In under 1800 sf, we were able to incorporate a full working kitchen, bar, seating for 50, a private dining room, and a glass wine cellar. By polishing the existing concrete floors and exposing the ceiling structure, the restaurant achieved a naturally rustic and warm ambiance rarely seen in Sarasota.
