Project Description

The Godfrey Hotel, a boutique hotel in the epicenter of trendy River North Chicago, was designed with style and luxury in mind. From the cubist inspired façade to the staggered truss post-tension design, the entire hotel is design focused. From the fourth floor, a stunning roofscape yields uninterrupted views of the southern Chicago skyline. The 15,000 square foot rooftop space, home to an indoor/outdoor bar is available for events year-round and includes panoramic views, a fire pit, shimmering water features, a video wall, and retractable roof.

The foundation of this chic space was created using Bison Versadjust Pedestals and 2×4 Smooth Ipê Wood Tiles for the deck surface. The 2×4 wood tiles compliment the modern aesthetics of the space and set the contemporary look allowing for other modern elements such as over-sized lamp lighting and posh seating, perfect for sipping drinks at the outdoor bar with a commanding view of Chicago.
