Meets all efficiency and sustainability standards of the Chicago Merchandise Mart where the project is located.
The Pella Crafted Luxury Showroom was built to display the Pella Corporation's custom residential window and door capabilities. The existing space in the Chicago Merchandise Mart has 20 foot high exterior windows on two sides. Custom Pella windows mounted inside of the existing Mart windows provide views to the city. The interior demising wall of the space also displays windows with views to 17 foot tall photomurals of landscapes behind them. The center aisle of the space has portable window displays and a series of door displays along each side open into furnished residential rooms . This central space also serves for social receptions and lectures organized by Pella and co-sponsored by the Chicago chapters of the AIA, the Institute for Classical Architecture and Art, and the Society of Architectural Historians.
