Nomad focuses on investing in underserved communities in Chicago and supporting women-owned businesses and traditional artisanship around the globe.

Helios transformed a vacant tenant space in River North into a modern retail boutique with café and event space for Nomad. The project consisted of new MEP systems, intricate tile work, custom fabricated millwork, herringbone wood flooring, and custom metal stairs with ornate pickets. Custom arched interior storefront systems separate the retail, café, and meeting room spaces. We also hung a custom ceiling cloud with integrated lighting from the structure within the café space.

Key Features

  Structural reinforcing required to accommodate a new entry stairway located above an existing sidewalk vault

   Custom fabricated millwork for retail and café functionality

  Ceiling suspended custom brass decorative retail display fixtures incorporated throughout the space

  New ductwork installed above drywall ceiling and routed between existing rafters to accommodate the retail, café & events space
