ABOUT THE PROJECT
This private residence off a beautiful, secluded road in The Hamptons features a modern façade clad in reSAWN’s HAI shou sugi ban charred wood specified by BAHND design studio.
BAHND DESIGN STUDIO is an architecture and design practice founded by Amanda Beethe to develop thoughtful, modern, sustainable architecture and design. They work with absolute dedication to the context of each project, ensuring that every space speaks to its owner in their own language. Their concepts draw inspiration from the place of each project: the history, nature and culture, and incorporate that into its future form.
Based in New York City, BAHND brings signature passion, curiosity and vitality to each of their projects, which have included restaurants, hotels, exhibitions, and residential design.
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).
