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 the balcony and window box as the organizing principal for the design of the facade of this 200 guestroom hotel on our “third coast”. Due to our intemperate climate, each guestroom has been provided with both an exterior balcony and 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 in Schematic Design.
