Canopy is a new lifestyle brand that was developed by Hilton to accommodate the needs of the contemporary leisure and business traveler. The key element of the brand is to celebrate the unique components of the region in which they are located. Bergmann worked in conjunction with MARKZEFF, a Brooklyn-based architecture and interior design firm, to deliver this exciting destination property to the Finger Lakes region.
The exterior brick and rain-screen facade was selected to allow the building to seamlessly blend in with the existing urban fabric and complement the natural, sustainable materials used on the interior. Repurposed factory window sashes were used as interior design elements to reflect the historic character of the region's industrial past. Sliding glass walls open up to the exterior dining patio and further support the ability for the guest to experience the neighborhood.
