Niketown

Chipman Design Architecture was the architect for the renovation of the five-story 60,000-square foot Niketown store on Michigan Avenue.

Nike was analyzing several retail architects when finally decided on Chipman. The studio created a new store layout and interior environment making the store more inviting and easier to shop. Revolving doors were relocated, fabric awnings were added and a butt-joint glass storefront was installed to maximize views into the store and return the facade to a character more in step with its neighbors. retail architects’ services also included new lighting systems that heightened store brightness and enhanced merchandise display.

Despite the project’s accelerated schedule, the complexity of its scope and the extent of structural modifications, Niketown remained open throughout construction.
