About the Project

For this D.C. office renovation, Gensler served as the architect and specified reSAWN’s BRIDGEPORT black walnut for several areas in the office. In the elevator bank and reception area, BRIDGEPORT was used for interior cladding and planter box surrounds, complementing the warm lighting and beautiful stonework. Most notably, BRIDGEPORT was utilized for the grand staircase directly behind the glass wall to the left of the reception area. Throughout the office, there are small break areas with high top tables, all of which have BRIDGEPORT table bases. There are also several more planter box surrounds and cladding accent walls all throughout different seating areas. The main break room also includes a custom BRIDGEPORT walnut waterfall countertop and vertical planter boxes.
BRIDGEPORT features plain sawn character grade American Black Walnut pre-finished with hardwax oil for flooring or wall cladding.

American Black Walnut is a heavy, strong wood defined by its rich deep browns and beautiful figure. PLAIN SAWN boards are produced by cutting tangentially to a tree’s growth rings producing the familiar “cathedral” or “flame” pattern on the board face.  The annual growth rings are generally at a 0° – 30° angle to the face of the board. The grain pattern of black walnut is mostly straight and open, but some boards have burled or curly grain.

reSAWN’s WALNUT offering includes wide plank north american black walnut wood flooring & interior wall cladding that is pre-finished and available in solid & engineered construction.  These designs emphasize the natural color & beauty of black walnut.  All designs are available as FSC ® upon request.
