Located in midtown Manhattan at 119 W 24th street, Alley NYC is a dynamic co-working space that fosters a creative and collaborative work environment.

“The prospect of working with brilliant minds and establishing a place where everyone can collaborate with one another to build innovative products really made my heart pump.”

NV/da specified reSAWN’s NETSU  shou sugi ban charred red oak wall cladding for the feature wall in the lobby of Alley NYC.

NV/DESIGN.ARCHITECTURE, PLLC  is a boutique firm offering a full spectrum of architectural services backed by broad experience.  NV/da takes pride in a personalized design approach that balances client goals, the requirements of the site, and the unique architectural potential for timeless design found within each project.

The ancient technique of shou sugi ban is gaining new life as a unique and modern interior and exterior wall cladding. The wood is carefully charred, misted with water, cooled, brushed to remove dust and loose debris, and then stained/sealed to create the unique designs you will find in the CHARRED collection.  The top coat sealer is applied prior to shipping (for exterior applications, we recommend sealing the face & back).
