About This Project

Case Study #12507:
Smoke Evacuation Grill

Client: Barneys New York
Design: Jeffrey Hutchison + Associates
Location: Barneys – Chicago, IL

This feature, designed as a smoke evacuation grill, was originally removed from the scope of the project due to cost. The architect and Barneys contacted Amuneal with a unique challenge — develop an approach to reduce the costs by 50% without compromising the design intent.

By exploring the best materials, geometry, fabrication approach, and installation strategy, we were able to deliver a feature that met their budget and remained true to the original intent. Approximately 30’ x 25’, this ceiling grill hangs five stories above the main stair and has a compound mitered geometry that is coordinated with the layout of the store’s curtain wall.
