The new Burberry flagship store was erected on the site of a former Burberry store on North Michigan Avenue. The curtain wall design evokes the classic Burberry Check realized in a complex, multi-layered rainscreen system of black fritted glass, mirror polished black oxidized stainless steel and concealed LED lighting.

The west elevation incorporates the main entrance storefront and a building-height display window while the south elevation has a multi-story glass wall that reveals the connecting stair between floors.

Heintges provided curtain wall consulting services during all phases of design and construction.
