Koo and Associates is a full-service architecture, planning and interior design firm. We also provide LEED consulting. Koo and Associates provides expertise in the residential, hospitality, hospitality interiors and institutional markets.
Our firm is completing construction documentation on a 42 unit affordable housing scattered site development on the West side of Chicago. The buildings are part of the Chicago Green Homes program and we anticipate getting the highest rating awarded. This project is also part of the Chicago Green Permit Program. We recently finished a green master planning exercise for the Chicago Housing Authority and The Habitat Company.
We recently completed theWit Hotel in downtown Chicago, a 27-story boutique hotel that contains state-of-the-art control systems and extensive LED lighting as just two of the strategies to reduce the energy profile of the project.
