Pritzker Hyatt Headquarters

Chicago, Illinois

As a senior designer at SOM, Ivan Pazos was instrumental in helping to develop and execute an award winning design that reflected the company’s core values as a leader in the hospitality industry. A seven-story atrium has cantilevered wooden “amenity boxes” that provide areas for meetings and a grand staircase connects the floors with the workspaces creating a workplace urbanism. Additionally, the use of natural materials and an earth-toned color palette create a welcoming feel that reflects the hospitality core of the company.
