- Project Status
When film distributor Music Box Films decided to convert a 7,000-square foot, two-story space into a single-story building with a mezzanine for its new offices, Hope’s was selected to provide custom, handcrafted steel windows and doors. Located in Chicago’s West Loop enterprise zone, the project was awarded a prestigious Small Project Award from the Chicago Chapter of the American Institute of Architects (AIA).
APPLICATION & BENEFITS
Hope’s provided Jamestown175™ Series solid hot-rolled steel windows and 5000 Series™ steel doors – along with custom mullion, muntin, and glazing solutions – to meet the design requirements for the exterior façade and vestibule. Chicago Architect magazine quoted an AIA award juror who referred to the “juxtaposition between modern and old,” a common design objective Hope’s windows and doors have fulfilled for more than a century.
