Transforming the new Succotash in the Penn Quarter neighborhood of Washington DC from a “completely raw space”required time, patience, and some rewriting of history to get everything just right. “It was fully dilapidated,” Michael Reginbogin, co-founder and design director of Knead Hospitality + Design, says of the poorly maintained structure at 915 F Street NW he presented to celebrity chef Edward Lee during their quest to build his debut D.C. restaurant.
Once Knead and architecture firm //3877 got inside, Reginbogin says the team discovered that there was no plumbing (including emergency sprinklers), no heating or air conditioning, and the existing flooring, walls and ceiling were in dire shape.
Bringing everything back to life was no small feat. Reginbogin had the oversized brass front door recreated, restored the striking red- and cream-swirled marble floors that adorn the ground level, refinished the Mexican mahogany wall paneling throughout, and redid all the plaster work on the walls and supporting columns. As another historic element, they chose to incorporate reSAWN’s WEATHERWORN reclaimed barn siding in the private dining and bar area.
WEATHERWORN is ANTIQUE RECLAIMED BARN SIDING in the raw – for interior wall cladding. The boards go through the typical reclamation process of power washing and denailing with the original patina of the board face left untouched. No finish is required as the boards have been naturally oxidized over the years to produce a tough, weather resistant “skin”. Typical character marks include mineral staining, color changes, weathering, checking, nail holes, knots, and heavy patina. Due to the nature of this material, thicknesses tend to vary slightly. WEATHERWORN is available in a variety of species and colors. This material is provided as a mix of light/dark grey and light/dark brown tones.
reSAWN offers antique reclaimed woods in solid & engineered construction for flooring, interior wall cladding, and millwork/stair applications. The unique beauty of antique wood is preserved & celebrated in this collection. Expect a warm palette of colors, with dense & varying grain patterns. Typical character marks include mineral staining, color changes, weathering, checking, nail holes, and knots.
