123 East Cermak Hotels is a 23-story hotel building in Chicago’s South Loop neighborhood. It’s home to three Hilton-family hotels – a Hampton Inn, a Hilton Garden Inn and a Home2Suites. It’s the first time Hilton has had three of its hotels in a single building. The 351,987-square-foot building has 466 guest rooms, four restaurants, an indoor pool and 7,000 square feet of meeting space.
The building’s modern design features more than 35,500 square-feet of Kingspan BENCHMARK Designwall 2000 Architectural Wall Panels. The design called for custom-width panels, as well as custom joint reveals. The typical reveal for an insulated metal panel (IMP) is 1/2-inch, but the design for 123 East Cermak called for a 2-inch reveal. This custom detail adds an interesting design element as the light and shadows change throughout the day, as well as the seasons.
