Hyatt Headquarters – Chicago

  • Year 2017
  • Location Chicago, Illinois, United States,
  • Industry Hospitality,
  • Gensler has designed the new headquarters for hospitality giant Hyatt located in Chicago, Illinois.

    Gensler’s Chicago and San Francisco teams came together to deliver on Hyatt’s move to bring their corporate colleagues together under one roof in a new architectural landmark floating above the confluence of two branches of the Chicago River.

    Using this move to transform their workplace and foster stronger connections between their hotels and their headquarters, Hyatt sought to build on their culture of care by creating an environment that allows people to be their very best — supporting them in the kind of interdisciplinary thinking and cross-functional collaboration necessary to compete in a fast-moving hospitality industry. Hyatt’s new headquarters, The Hyatt Hub, combines the best attributes of private offices — privacy, the ability to meet on-demand and a sense of ownership — with the best attributes of open plan environments — flexibility, camaraderie and lateral awareness — in a new model of workplace strategy.
