The Godfrey Hotel by Valerio Dewalt Train Associates is located in the heart of Chicago's north-west neighbourhood. The sleek structure features a stacked and linear design that is composed of layered box elements. In addition to these heavier volumes, the hotel also boasts ribbed geometry details that are inspired by the skeletal forms of the human body.

Valerio Dewalt Train Associates' Godfrey Hotel has gained attention both for its stunning design and "truss construction", a favorite of the architecture studio. The building's visually striking facade stands out against its urban Chicago backdrop that features a mix of mostly traditional buildings.

This modern architecture piece is sure to become a monumental symbol of the city's skyline and is a project that relies on an equal balance of form and function.
