At the corner of Oak and Rush in Chicago’s fashion district, JHA designed a style emporium that stays true to the urbane Barneys New York aesthetic while honoring the Windy City’s great architectural heritage. The 91,500 square-foot, six-story outpost that opened in 2009 evokes iconic Chicago structures, like Louis Sullivan’s Carson Pirie Scott store, while implementing fresh, clean elements that reflect the Barneys sensibility. A 5-story curved glass “curtain wall” unveiling a dramatic 3-story staircase forms the building’s façade. Indiana limestone and bronze-framed windows enhance its classic design. Inside, geometric murals, sculptural staircases, and sweeping vistas reflect the luxury of Chicago, while gallery-like elements showcase the tantalizing selection of merchandise.
