The Wit Hotel
Doubletree by Hilton
Chicago, IL, USA

Architect:
KOO & Associates

Contractor:
McHugh Construction


Energized and upbeat, colorful and caring, theWit Hotel endeavors to inspire your imagination, stir your soul and embrace curious, witty travelers. And theWit does just that in a fabulously designed movable glass partition inside their signature bar. When required, the glass wall can be extended to divide a portion of the bar for a more private gathering, yet still give full access to the bartenders. The glass panels nest into a slight notch in the bar dividing the space, but not the servers, giving the feeling of intimacy to patrons with the playful interaction with the outstanding mixologists.

The designer was quite witty in the use of materials to create the private space. The Hufcor GL1 system installed customized 3Form polycarbonate substrates. These maintained the whimsical, yet natural, relaxing elements of the space. Long natural fibers are encased within translucent polycarbonate which affords a visual barrier yet lets defused light to enter the spaces. The movable glasswall system provides theWit with even more flexibility in serving its customers and enhancing “theExperience,” all with assistance from the local Hufcor Chicago team.

In addition to the movable glass wall, the Hufcor team installed four separate operable partitions that divided the meeting spaces at theWit. The hotel has ultimate flexibility to serve the meeting needs of their exacting clients using the 600 Series operable walls.
