This multi-million dollar floating staircase is located at the Tommy Hilfiger flagship store in New York. It is a unique architectural wonder--the only one of its kind in the world.

Americon Contractors, with collaboration from Callison Architecture Inc., was joined by a team of industrial designers, mechanical engineers and structural engineers all based out of Toronto, Canada. They all came together to make this floating staircase at the Tommy Hilfiger flagship store a reality.

Designer Adam Shepperdley of Features Walters was the lead designer and project manager. He created the 3D model on which the staircase was based.

The floating staircase at the Tommy Hilfiger flagship store took 18 months to complete.
