Mchenry, Illionis | Hospitality & Museum
Role on Project
- Lead Designer | Matt Kidd
The oculus hotel proposed location is on a prominent point along the Fox river. The hotel would cater to boat traffic as well as visitors to the proposed botanical gardens and revitalized downtown Mchenry. The design features dynamic exterior views to each room as well as a rooftop event space with panoramic views to the river. Sustainable strategies such as stack ventilation, photovoltaic sun shades, and natural daylighting strategies make the proposed hotel a compelling attraction for eco-tourism.
