The new Restoration Hardware at Yorkdale expands on the mall’s attempts to meet the needs of Canada’s changing demographics. Recent changes at Yorkdale have focused on the need for an immersive experiential space – something more than a mere place to shop. Restoration Hardware’s new store focuses on customer immersion and experience.

The first of its kind in Canada, this RH location features four floors of luxurious home décor, a glazed conservatory, landscaped outdoor roof space, coffee bar and full-service restaurant in a gallery-like setting.

Dryvit’s EIFS has the smallest ecological footprint of any cladding system and for Restoration Hardware, it was an important economic consideration as well as the performance capabilities.

Dryvit’s Outsulation PD system provides the optimum cladding choice as a fully compartmentalized rainscreen – which locks the drainage cavity closed at the building corners and parapet, to ensure the best thermal performance is provided. Integration of the Dryvit system with other building envelope components was managed with 2 stage seals at all interfaces – to minimize the reliance for exterior sealants for the air/moisture resistance of the assembly.
