Located in the thriving Fulton Market District, the Ace Hotel Chicago is a 159-room boutique hotel featuring retail at the ground level. The new hotel features welcoming plazas at the ground level and a 5th floor rooftop amenity rooftop, named "Prairie." The 2,900 square foot terrace features unobstructed views of the skyline, lush plantings, footpaths, and the centerpiece – a playful blue lounging dome - the Nesci Dome - where visitors are encouraged to climb, sit in, and swing on this massive sculptural feature. The crisp blue structural steel sits among a diverse prairie planting that represents Chicago's landscape history.

We collaborated with @grec_architects and @jonathan_nesci for @sterlingbay.

Thanks for the recognition, @Spacestor!

#REPOST: A stunning design which includes an elevated stage for performers, a lounge and kitchen with home-style amenities, and huddle spaces and phone rooms to accommodate privacy in the open office.

With #NeoCon2021 coming up, and with opening our brand new #Chicago Design Center, we thought it would be great to celebrate another organisation that has a flagship office in the impressive #MartBuilding.

@condenast group decided to combine its Chicago Conde Nast and @pitchfork teams under one roof, and now holds a 12,000-square foot space on the 21st floor of the Merchandise Mart. The design of this impressive space was led by local Chicago architecture studio, @grec_architects and breaks away from the typical ‘glossy media’ office space and joins the Condé Nast and Pitchfork teams in a creative, open workspace with loads of natural light.

Help us to celebrate this amazing #WorkspaceOfTheWeek

The Hoxton's @lazybird was feaured in @esquire's "Best Bars in America, 2021"! 🍸
Of the 27 featured in the nationwide spotlight, Lazy Bird was the only Chicago bar to be featured:

" Hidden beneath the Hoxton Hotel, Lazy Bird could win on moody, jazz-age seduction alone. [...] There are dialed-in classics like the Hemingway daiquiri and deep cuts like the rum- forward Mary Pickford and the Blackthorn, an ode to Irish whiskey. You’ll emerge from the bar impeccably buzzed and enlightened. "

Link in bio for the full feature.
