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 KOO renovated the boutique Fairfield Inn & Suites in the Streeterville neighborhood of downtown Chicago with a custom renovation for the property’s 185 guestrooms and suites. Fifteen floors of guestrooms, guest baths and guest corridors were updated with head-to-toe custom casegood pieces ranging from blue crocodile headboards with exaggerated over-sized nail heads to laser-cut drapery valences. All public spaces such as the lobby, breakfast room, meeting rooms and exercise room also received a face-lift to create a more transitional look and feel throughout the hotel. The lobby space received a fresh new pod-style reception desks, with statement chandeliers that cast light patterns onto the ceiling and walls, creating an alluring new mood for the space.  INFO  Fairfield Inn

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
