Architectural Design Support
A National Retailer was seeking a closure solution that looked like an exterior garage door for their new concept store. The store would be accessories, cosmetics, and home goods targeting younger millennials, so it needed to achieve a very specific look. The Retailer was struggling to meet the aesthetic demands while maintaining functionality.
The Retailer reached out to our Architectural Design Services (ADS) team for assistance in bringing their vision to fruition.
Upon review of the requirements, our ADS team along with Riley Rose Architect and Design team decided the project would need a customized product solution that would meet aesthetic standards and maintain functionality. This product solution met egress requirements using Cornell's sleek design of the Evergard Operator and met the aesthetic expectations of the retail storefront using the powder coated guide and bottom bar to match the storefront.
With the help of our ADS team, the Retailer achieved their desired vision, and went on to implement this prototype into their new store specification. We have completed 13 locations.
