Glacier House


Steel, Commissioned by Glacier House for Element Hotel in Chandler, AZ.


The goal of this project was to create a signature landmark for the Element Hotel at Chandler Fashion Center.


After discussing a concept and direction with Glacier House Hotels, we presented several ideas. With feedback from their consultants, the site specific jack-rabbit theme was chosen. Elemental Jack is the end result of a collaboration between Glacier House creative management and our studio.
