With a primary goal of revitalizing Boston’s South End neighborhood, Elkus Manfredi Architects created a design aesthetic that focuses on returning the area to a lively, dynamic mixed-use community. Drawing inspiration from former building owner–the Boston Herald–Ink Block has become a pillar in Boston’s revitalization project with classic Bostonian motifs and contemporary, edgy design features.
With simple, subtle color notes, Osprey Software wanted a wood with a natural color and enhanced grain. reSAWN’s REED features antique reclaimed hemlock that is wire brushed to accentuate the unique grain pattern of hemlock.
Specified for ceiling cladding and wall cladding, REED can be found in reSAWN’s enCORE collection. The enCORE collection is made up entirely of different reclaimed wood species that include heart pine, oak, barn siding, chestnut, hemlock, and hickory. With a design aesthetic that includes dark and light grey colors, the natural coloring of the REED feature wall truly stands out. Hemlock’s unique grain pattern becomes very clear with the overhead, track lighting.

Our PLATEAU collection promotes the natural color and beauty of domestic rift and quarter sawn white oak. All of the PLATEAU collection designs are available as FSC ® certified.
ABOUT THE PROJECT
Bringing together a barbecue style and interior design aesthetic that captures the unique culture of Cleveland, Mabel’s BBQ owner and celebrity chef, Michael Symon worked closely with Richardson Design to specify reSAWN’s HAI shou sugi ban charred cypress interior wall cladding.
Richardson Design was tasked with combining the “…lived-in and worn characteristics of traditional barbecue restaurants…” with the true essence of Cleveland. The design team searched through the CHARRED collection, and eventually, decided on the deeply burnt, dark black HAI shou sugi ban charred cypress interior wall cladding. With a restaurant that depends on a slow, smoky method of cooking, the specification of HAI shou sugi ban charred cypress interior wall cladding is an homage to the fire induced flavor of Mabel’s BBQ.
ABOUT THE PROJECT
Pizza (216), a New York style, brick oven pizzeria, is located in Cleveland, OH. With an interior motif that sets a maroon color scheme against dark, brown seating, the dining room and bar are cohesively finished with reSAWN’s KURO shou sugi ban charred cypress wall cladding that accentuates the restaurant’s natural aesthetic.
This material was specified by local and national award-winning, Robert Maschke Architects Inc., known for innovative design techniques that create “…complex spatial effects with modest means.” Materials were specified with a 5-1/8″ wide face and tongue & groove milling. A select grade of cypress was used to ensure a high-quality look and durable functionality.

Tadashi, Ganso’s Partner and Culinary Director, is a celebrated chef who has won plaudits for both his Japanese and French cooking in The New York Times, Gourmet, Food & Wine and other publications. From 2003 to 2012 he served as Executive Chef of Matsuri.
Harris, Ganso’s Managing Partner, is a Brooklyn native long fascinated by Japan. Harris’s stories about Japanese cuisine have appeared in The New York Times, Saveur, Gourmet and other publications. Harris has also trained in Japanese restaurant kitchens in New York, Tokyo and Kyoto.
Sushi Ganso was designed by Amy Butchko of Butchko & Co. Amy worked with natural materials to create a casual, comfortable atmosphere that evokes a Japanese sensibility. On the wall opposite the sushi bar is a giant mural of a sea bream gyo-taku (Japanese fish print) painted by the renown New York-based Japanese artist Momoyo Torimitsu. The inscription below the fish reads, “I’ve come to Sushi Ganso to be eaten”.
Ganso has two other locations in Brooklyn – Ganso Yaki and Ganso Ramen – each with a different focus. Ganso Yaki is a Japanese izakaya restaurant that cooks bold, rustic Japanese soul food and grill. Taking inspiration from the alleyway shops, backstreet restaurants and mom & pop joints of the old Shitamachi section of Tokyo, the authentic dishes range from grilled fish, meat and yakitori to street food classics to seasonal vegetables to handmade soba noodles. Relying on the simple excellence of traditional ingredients and cooking techniques, Chef Ono’s expansive menu changes daily and with the seasons. Ganso Ramen is the only ramen house in New York to cook a classic, all-chicken, Tokyo ramen shop-style “mannen” stock. Mannen literally means “ten thousand years old.” It alludes to a traditional ramen technique of continually refreshing a rich, concentrated stock with newly cooked broth. Like feeding a sourdough starter to become more and more sublime, this technique creates more and more profound depth — so much depth, flavor and fragrance, it’s as if the stock were cooking for ten thousand years.
Ganso and reSAWN are aligned in that they both draw inspiration from the past to make something new.
