Rack Room Shoes Headquarters
Charlotte, NC

The 70,000-sf U.S. headquarters of Rack Room Shoes reflects the strong influence of the retailer's German parent company, The Deichmann Group. The aluminum and glass exterior with aluminum sunshades bears a distinct high-tech international style. The "glass box" is very transparent, yet energy efficient with high performance glass. Its rectangular steel structure spans 40 feet from perimeter wall to the core, providing total flexibility for future growth.


This distinctive project was designed and built in just 12 months—delivered precisely within the allotted schedule and budget parameters.
