Hohn & Hohn Inc. Participates in Park Inn Renovation
Hohn & Hohn, Inc. was contracted for glass tile installation work at the historic Park Inn Hotel in Mason City, Iowa – the only remaining Frank Lloyd Wright-designed hotel (of the six for which he was the architect of record) in the world.
During the renovation process, the general contractor discovered iridescent glass tile in the brick mortar joints of the columns in one portion of the building. The decision was made to have new glass installed in the brick mortar joints of the upper columns in what would become the hotel’s ballroom. Hohn & Hohn, Inc. completed the project in early August. Check out photos of the hotel and the restoration process on the Park Inn’s web site.
