Hyatt Hotel Canopy

KOHN ARCHITECTURE designed a new glass and steel, illuminated entrance canopy for the new 25-story Hyatt Hotel in midtown Manhattan.
KOHN conceived the open butterfly-shape canopy design to play against the building’s height. The sculptural presence of the canopy establishes an arrival point for visitors.
Working with a structural engineer and a steel contractor, KOHN ARCHITECTURE developed the details of the steel support structure. The open spacing of the canopy’s steel members and integral light fixtures contribute to its visual lightness and exuberance.
