Design concept: The Hoxton Chicago

by | 19 May 2021 | Design, Design Concept

The Hoxton Chicago, the result of a dynamic collaboration between Grec Architects, AvroKO and Ennismore Design Studio, is the focus for our latest TOPHOTELDESIGN exclusive.

Drawing inspiration from the building’s industrial past and the creative neighbourhood it sits within, The Hoxton Chicago integrates industrial elements and local art into a scheme defined by the hotel brand’s lifestyle ethos.

A creative setting for The Hoxton

The 2019-opened Hoxton Chicago brought the brand’s signature hospitality approach to the city’s creative Fulton Market District, taking over a building that was once used by auto-mechanics and meatpackers.

On launching, it offered The Hoxton’s inaugural co-working space, spanning two floors. In addition, it became the first Hoxton property to have a fitness studio – complete with a rotating wellness programme – along with a Hox Shop selling the goods of local makers, and the brand’s debut rooftop pool.

These amenities were joined by 182 bedrooms across Snug, Roomy and Cosy categories, along with the all-day dining restaurant Cira, rooftop Peruvian restaurant and bar Cabra, and basement cocktail den Lazy Bird.

Celebrating the building’s heritage

A big part of what sets this hotel apart is its appealing design. Guestrooms were brought to life by Ennismore Studio Studio to reflect the building’s industrial past through the inclusion of details such as warehouse-style windows. These elements have then been paired with mid-century furnishings, custom-designed rugs and local art.

The three restaurant and bar areas, as well as the lobby, were designed in collaboration with AvroKO in New York to emphasise comfort and the hotel’s open-house concept, from the light-filled, high-ceilinged space of Cira to the sophisticated, low-lit Lazy Bird.

The design of Grec Architects, AvroKO and Ennismore Design Studio is complemented by a carefully chosen selection of stylish products, from signs to luggage racks, by Apir.
