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 Hotel will feature 13 stories of attractive, modern guest-rooms, 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 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.
