The Hemsworth brothers plan a Byron yoga centre

It’s modest, considering the mammoth mansion that Chris Hemsworth built in Byron, but plans have been submitted for a small yoga studio to be built on a 35 hectare block the Hemsworth family bought last year, for a cool $4.25 million.

The cabana will be just 58sqm, and is situated by an artificial dam the family has also built on the property. In addition, they have built a horse arena on the land.

Despite the modest size, council approval was still required to build the retreat.

The structure is reported to cost $138,000 and will take 60 days to complete. 

Both Chris and Liam hold interest in CHLH Management, who have spent close to $18 million buying bits of Byron, however Chris remains company director.

Of course, this new structure will bring to mind the elongated build of Chris Hemworth’s $20m compound, which he started building in 2016.

Sydney architecture firm MCK were behind the build, saying of their designs: “Our distinctive aesthetic is known for its classic proportion and geometric form.

“We enjoy using unexpected materials that challenge and sometimes even surprise. We also believe that good architecture and respect for the environment go hand in hand.”

Chris also commissioned the below mural by Aboriginal artist Otis Hope Carey for one of his walls, which should give some idea of the scope of the place.

Comparatively, the new yoga studio is quite modest.
