Room & Board is a Minneapolis based, family owned furniture retailer. When they were planning to open a new store in Atlanta, they hired us in part for our expertise in working with old buildings. We adapted an initial conceptual design by Gensler and managed the construction process throughout. We paid tribute to the building’s heritage, while creating a totally contemporary space. The original meatpacking building's giant, steel smoker doors and concrete columns combine with a modern storefront of glass, concrete, and steel to create a seamless environment for Room & Board’s products.
