Slide ROOF on theWIT Slide Slide Slide ROOF on theWit opened 10 years ago as a game-changing rooftop bar with an open air patio focused on the nightlife sector. The goal of this renovation was to create a bespoke, yet technologically integrated design for a client who is always at the forefront of technology. The Patio space was lacking a strong focal point. To address this need, we added a soaring new 18-foot back bar that glows in a champagne finish, illuminating the bottle display through a geometric walnut ring framing a monumentally-sized 12 ft. x 8 ft. digital array at its center. The bar front below is crafted from custom angular water-jet cut tiles that sweep along the concave curvature of the bar face. Five u-shaped banquettes support a custom digital art wall with nine additional screens. They interact with the large digital array and create a unique medium for different kinds of video art, adding energy and excitement to the venue and transforming the space from day to night and create and opportunity to brand private events. The synchronized digital panels display video art created specifically for ROOF. These “art stories” move across the screens in tandem. They are inset into an intricate laser-cut lattice of frames in a two-toned wood finish that brings warmth to the modernity. Hand-painted black and white graphic cement floor tiles create a striking centerpiece in the room, anchoring the low lounge seating groupings. Low sofas, piled high with pillows crafted from authentic, fair trade, hand-woven Turkish Kilim carpets in heavily saturated colors. Each Kilim was carefully curated and precisely cut to achieve thoughtful placement of patterns and motifs that make up a vibrant, one-of-a kind, durable pillow collection. Leather stools and seating and wood tables for dining complete the space.  INFO  ROOF on theWIT

Slide Offshore Slide Slide Slide Slide Guinness Book of World Records has officially confirmed Offshore as the world’s largest rooftop lounge, which is located on Chicago’s historic Navy Pier. The year-round venue is enclosed by a barrel vaulted ETFE roof and operable glass walls which open to bring the lakefront inside. The fritted ceiling diffuses light and makes the space feel like summer all year around. After dark, guests enter through a moody entry with floating globe lights dotting the way to the bright and airy 16’ tall, 7500 SF venue. An entry feature wall of cascading colorful propellers creates an ombre effect that reflects on the surrounding ceiling and floors when illuminated.  INFO  Offshore

Slide 444 Social Slide Slide Slide Slide 444 Social is a large scale multi-family residential building comprised of just over 300 rental units divided between two buildings in Linconshire, Illinois. The concept for this complex is to create a socially-engaging atmosphere by providing residents with a variety of common areas with social activities where residents may plan parties, sit pool side, play bocce ball, barbecue and socialize. As the interior designer for this project, KOO planned and designed the communal spaces to feel fresh, upbeat and exciting to create a social and fun environment. From the mid-century modern inspired conversation pit in the main lobby to game tables in the coffee cafe, the spaces are all lively and welcoming in their own way. The main central staircase dually functions as a media lounge where residents can sit and catch a flick on a large projection screen.  INFO  444 SOCIAL
