RH Opens Stunning Marketplace in the Heart of Napa Valley
In 2018, Restoration Hardware has seemed intent on redefining the modern shopping experience. Earlier this year the company, now known simply as RH, opened a massive, 90,000-square-foot shopping and hospitality space in New York’s Meatpacking District, and last month it cut the ribbon on RH Yountville, a five-building compound in the heart of California’s Napa Valley.
In addition to two boutique design galleries where guests can shop the RH line, the compound also features the brand’s first stand-alone restaurant, which it collaborated on with restauranteur Brendan Sodikoff. The restaurant invites guests to dine under a soaring glass roof surrounded by 100-year-old heritage olive trees and sparkling crystal chandeliers. A two-story stone wine vault is now in the property’s historic Ma(i)sonry Building, which was built in 1904 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. And, lastly, an outdoor wine and barista bar makes up the rest of the compound, which was designed by James Gillam of Backen & Gillam.
“The biggest challenge and most rewarding design factor was integrating all five buildings—both old and new—with geometric harmony and scale by way of interior and exterior passageways punctuated by intimate gardens, outdoor living spaces, and very aged olive trees that span the compound,” Gillam tells Galerie. “A transparent glass roof, 40-foot-long skylights, and retractable steel-and-glass panels offer beautiful quality of light and seamless connections between indoors and out.”
