This roof deck amenity space offers a place for employees in the building to work and collaborate outdoors. The landscaped environment adds green space to the neighborhood and promotes gathering in a work and social setting. The materials used are all recyclable, the wood is FCS certified, and all the lighting is LED for energy efficiency.
The new roof amenity deck at 600 W. Chicago adds a large, dynamic outdoor space for the use of the building occupants featuring a sun deck, grilling areas, a fire pit and a private lounge and meeting area. The deck, set atop the building penthouse, offers great views of the city skyline to the east as well as views of the Chicago River to the west. Materials drawn from the industrial aesthetic of the building include IPE decking, concrete pavers, blackened steel, and zinc cladding. A linear pergola and a row of trees helps to unify the space and offer continuous sunshading with densely planted areas scattered throughout the various spaces and continuous elements overhead.
