About the Project

Restoration Hardware, rebranding itself RH, chose the heart of Atlanta’s Buckhead district for its contemporary southern estate concept store and regional offices, set on 1.6 acres.

The 63,000-square-foot RH showroom displays the range and depth of the company’s upscale home goods—from furniture and textiles to fixtures and tableware.

The builder contracted Southern Wall Systems to apply the exterior stucco, waterproofing, and decorative finish to the entire structure.

The latter is the multilayered specialty finish called LaHabra® made by Parex USA, honoring the California company’s original ancestor: LaHabra Products, which began making pre-blended exterior stucco and interior plaster back in 1926.

So good was the result that SWS was hired to do the same kind of work for the RH Gallery in Denver.
