Chicago is defined by its relationship to Lake Michigan, but because of the Burnham Plan, a hotel on Navy Pier would be the only location that would have the opportunity to provide the experience of looking back at the postcard view of the Chicago skyline. Because of this unique opportunity, KOO started with a window box as the organizing principle for the design of the facade of this 200 guestroom hotel on our “third coast”. Each guestroom has been provided with a window seat from which to connect with the City. The angled surface orientation creates a textured exterior that subtly reflects the ever-changing range of light, shadow, and color of the Lake. This project is currently under construction.
