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