apogee

Design firm: BlocHaus, Chicago
The details: Sitting atop the Dana Hotel and Spa, Apogee is a gleaming
beacon above Chicago's bustling downtown. To craft the midcenturyinspired rooftop bar and lounge (a redo of the hotel's former lounge
Vertigo), local firm BlocHaus opted for a sophisticated palette of materials
and custom furnishings-from lighting that recalls old street lamps to
geometric brass screens, which divide the space into intimate zones.
Walnut-fluted walls wrapping the lounge's perimeter-almost three
miles of walnut strips were cut in half-inch segments and spaced a
half-inch apart to create a chevron pattern-are a true testament to the
firm's homage to Chicago's architecture. Brass accents add "warmth,
modernity, and depth to the walls that otherwise wouldn't be found,"
says firm founder and principal Nick Bowers, who is also working on
other spaces within the hotel. Marble (on the floors, walls, and the bar)
is a material "one might find in vintage buildings of neighborhoods in
Chicago," he explains, and plush mohair seating in sapphire-a nod to
Lake Michigan-elevates the space to a moody seen-and-be-seen lounge.
Even restrooms are a design tour de force with walnut doors opening up
to deep blue tile-covered walls (a custom hue) with glimmering gold grout
that radiates off metallic mirrors and lights.
Meanwhile, the outdoor patio is "meant to be playful and modern," he
says. Both the central fireplace and bar front are clad in vibrant yellow and
white tile, while grass intertwined with hexagon tile behind the bar give
the space a "lighter, more vibrant energy" than the more refined inside.
