Salvatore Ferragamo is a luxury goods designer out of Florence, Italy, specializing in shoes, off-the-rack clothing, and fine leather goods for men and women. They have a strong appreciation for their high-end customers who expect an exclusive shopping experience. So when it was time to expand their North Michigan Avenue location in Chicago, Illinois, Salvatore Ferragamo looked to our team for the planning of a prosperous expansion.
We worked with their corporate team (located in Italy), collaborating on concept design and design development. Starting with the demolition of the first floor, the new design would start fresh, transforming the space into a two-story exterior façade connected by a central staircase. We expanded the second floor by 3,300 square feet, and added a third floor to house a mechanical room.
The renovation totaled over 8,600 square feet and includes an elevator for ADA accessibility. Our designs incorporate elegant window displays, lush lighting, and a handsome hardwood finish. Cherished customers can now shop comfortably in the North Michigan Avenue location that reflects the Salvatore Ferragamo brand—classy, stylish, sophisticated.
