Krause Sawyer’s Canopy by HiltonFriends of ABC Stone Krause Sawyer channeled Washington, D.C’s waterfront heritage for its design for The Canopy, a Hilton hotel on the Southwest Waterfront. Hilton’s first “Canopy” hotel in the United States, it also lies close to the two-hundred year-old Maine Avenue Fish Market. Krause Sawyer co-founders Kajsa Krause and Tracey Sawyer were, in their own words, “Inspired by the transformation of the marina and the fish market over time” – the later now being landmarked. The 175-key hotel is anchored by a main public space, Canopy Central. For the design of hotel and public space alike the office drew upon maritime themes and employed nautical materials such as a weathered oak and steel, recalling docks and warehouses. Guestrooms feature carpets with patterns resembling waves, and canopies invoking the shapes of fish crates.
