Within an extremely tight budget and time frame, Aria Group designed four new concepts at the Hyatt Hotel adjacent to McCormick Place. They included a contemporary casual café, an upscale restaurant with an indoor patio and hide-away buffet, a tapas bar and a plush lounge. Hyatt’s concern was to create a clear circulation path for conventioneers to McCormick Place while creating flexibility to accommodate dramatic variations of occupancy and users. Aria Group achieved this by creating moveable layers and visual buffers allowing our client flexibility to independently activate separate areas as needed per occupant loads and time of day.
