Heartpine Woodwork

Millwork at public areas was fabricated from reclaimed old-growth ‘Heartpine’ which had been sourced from a former textile mill in Virginia. Raw salvaged structural material from this mill was processed and fabricated into millwork and cabinetry by Michael Verde Millwork at their local Bridgehampton shop.

Black Wood

Ship-lapped, knotty, red cedar exterior siding was blackened through a traditional ebonizing process that reacts with the natural tannins of the wood to produce a deep charcoal like finish. The toothed surface of the siding was treated with a dyeing solution formulated of iron oxide and acetic acid by Mims Family Painters. A similar technique was used to finish interior heartpine doors which were further handbrushed to express the woods’ distinctive grain structure.

Concrete Walls

Exterior site-cast structural concrete walls were constructed by Palatial Concrete utilizing modular plywood forms. A smooth continuous concrete bench is poured integral to the base of the exterior walls in contrast with the rough formed concrete above.

Concrete Floors

Exposed structural concrete slabs with integral power-trowelled finish surface. Concrete mix reinforced with composite fibers.
