Views of the downtown Chicago skyline are magnificent.
The views to Chicago’s iconic city skyline are unmatched from our clients’ 4th floor Bucktown roof. Highlighting this outstanding feature was first and foremost in our design approach, so views are unobstructed in all directions.
We began by creating several functional spaces that flow together as a whole. By introducing multiple levels of wood and porcelain decking we were able to break up the space visually and programmatically. The lower landing features a cozy Holly Hunt table and chairs perfect for enjoying the fresh morning air over coffee. On the same level, the bar allows for cocktail hour later in the afternoon, and views to the city’s north.
One level up, a synthetic turf and porcelain tile walkway is flanked by aluminum containers planted with exuberant native plantings. The walkway leads to a viewing station at the parapet wall, where views of the downtown Chicago skyline are magnificent.
Lastly, another step up brings one to the super-chill lounge area replete with furnishings by Gloster and Janus et Cie. A firebox and heated Tuuci umbrella keep the night chill at bay while friends enjoy the skyline as it comes alive in the evening hours.
