OAKVILLE, Ontario, Feb. 09, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- America’s capital city is about to get a fresh new destination that will give visitors an inviting place to stay, enjoy a great meal and see the many local sights. The MOXY Hotel in Washington, D.C. has started construction on a new rooftop restaurant under a custom retractable single slope enclosure from OpenAire. The MOXY Hotel will feature 13 storeys of attractive, modern guestrooms, topped by a bold rooftop lounge with an almost 830-square-foot operable enclosure just a few blocks from the White House.

The MOXY Hotel is the result of an ambitious design and renovation project that combines an existing historic building in the city with the new MOXY Hotel by Marriott’s bold, edgy style. OpenAire’s approximately 20-foot by 42-foot restaurant enclosure uses a modern, single-slope glass roof that features two 11-foot-long bi-parting roof panels, which will slide open from the structure’s center to bathe the restaurant’s interior in abundant light. The aluminum-framed roof is supported by three sets of bi-folding doors, which will open to the adjacent terrace to provide guests with unobstructed views of the American Capital’s skyline.

“We are proud to be creating another unique project in one of America’s historic cities,” says Mark Albertine, President of OpenAire, “OpenAire has created a modern lean-to enclosure design that reflects the spirit of the MOXY Hotel’s brand; giving guests a space that is attractive but boldly unique.”

OpenAire is working in collaboration with Fillat + Architecture, MOXY Hotel lead architect, to ensure this unique and dynamic restaurant enclosure fits the new hotel’s design aesthetic seamlessly. The MOXY Hotel will be complete in the Fall of 2018, allowing visitors to the nation’s capital to experience the power of an OpenAire environment.
