Located in the heart of Washington DC’s Golden Triangle, 1130 Connecticut Ave is a 12 floor office tower built in 1986. For one of their recent office renovations, they enlisted the help of DC architecture firm Wingate Hughes to design the new space. They incorporated several different finishes throughout the space, including stenciled floors, marble countertops and reSAWN’s LONGPORT black walnut.
At the entrance of the suite, LONGPORT black walnut cladding surrounds the glass doors, setting the tone for the rest of the space. Modern touches, like the lighting fixtures incorporated into the entrance and marble accents contrast the warm tones of the wood cladding. The main kitchen includes a custom LONGPORT black walnut counter with a marble waterfall top and floating shelves above the sink.
LONGPORT features wide plank plain sawn select or character grade American Black WALNUT prefinished with a matte polyurethane for flooring or wall cladding. The wide face width showcases the full character and grain pattern that black walnut has to offer.
American Black Walnut is a heavy, strong wood defined by its rich deep browns and beautiful figure. The grain pattern of black walnut is mostly straight and open, but some boards have burled or curly grain.
reSAWN TIMBER co.’s WALNUT collection features wide plank north american black walnut wood interior wall cladding and flooring that is prefinished and available in solid & engineered construction. These designs emphasize the natural color & beauty of black walnut. All designs are available as FSC ® upon request.
reSAWN’s black walnut products utilize the steaming process to darken lighter sapwood. Steamed walnut creates a deep, rich walnut tone, and the resulting product has a more even monochromatic brown aesthetic across heartwood and sapwood. In addition to steaming, reSAWN specializes in various finishing techniques that highlight the natural beauty of black walnut. The following products are offered as steamed: WILLIAMSPORT, WESTPORT, BELLEPORT, STOCKPORT, ROCKPORT, and LONGPORT.
