What sets Sawkill apart is the not only the quality and history of its wood, some of which has been around for 1000 years, but also the intensity, focus, and care that goes into its rehabilitation and transformation.
Sourced locally and regionally: from barns, industrial sites, houses, apartments, and bars - from the Coney Island Boardwalk and Domino Sugar Factory to a range of 19th and early 20th c. structures.
We intentionally seek out a diverse range of colors, grains, sizes and patinas. In taking wood that has a historical value, we are able to integrate that history into a conceptually and aesthetically new product.There is always a tension between the past and the present, between the used and the unused. At Sawkill, we are aware, and respectful of that tension. We try and bring the past into the future, not appropriating history, but continuing a tradition of using natural materials for sustainable construction.
