The Hope’s Jamestown175™ Series steel windows and 5000 Series™ steel doors were installed in the home of the technology startup Music Box Films. Located in Chicago’s West Loop enterprise zone, the project converted a 7,000-square-foot, two-story space into a single-story building with a mezzanine.
The design was the work of Shapiro Associates of Chicago. A Music Box Films’ blog says, “our space was renovated with the aesthetic of the sci-fi classic ‘Blade Runner’ in mind. Incorporating glass panels, floating metal staircases, a catwalk, and panels of wood repurposed from the original structure, the building speaks to our vision and commitment to artistry.”
Both the Hope’s Jamestown175 Series and the Hope’s 5000 Series windows and doors have been installed in luxury residential and prestigious commercial and institutional projects across the country.
McGuire Engineers, Inc and Samartano & Co., both of Chicago, consulted on the project. The general contractor was Knudsen Construction, Inc. of Calumet City, IL.
