ABOUT THE PROJECT
Pass thru the formal English garden in the courtyard, and ascend to this residence in Manhattan’s Upper West Side – a respite from the hustle and bustle of New York, in both location and decor.
Flooring throughout is reSAWN’s wide plank rift & quarter sawn white oak specified by Redtop Architects. The unique grain patter of rift & quarter sawn white oak is prominently on display here.
RIFT SAWN lumber is produced by first cutting the log into quarters and then making alternating cuts that are perpendicular to the annual growth rings. QUARTER SAWING produces boards with mostly vertical-grain and a distinctive figuring often referred to as “flecks”, “flakes” or “ray flecks” caused by the medullary rays of the log.
