A BREATHTAKING PAEAN TO NATURE
THE FRIENDS SCHOOLAt the heart of the Friends School is their meeting room. Nestled in the vaulted ceiling are pieces of Eastern White Pine measuring 18” wide and 22’ long, representing the longest and widest piece of wood from the trees that would successfully pass through the mill. Finishing off the room are 10”, 8”, and 6” wide horizontal V-groove pattern wainscot boards with a clear polyurethane finish.
MODEST MODERNITY IN THE WOODS
EAGLE POND HOUSEArchitecturally, this modern home draws on contemporary Scandinavian styles — clean lines and light wood interi- ors. The architects, Jessica Cook and Scott McCullough, aimed to keep the design as simple and modest as possible to highlight the natural beauty of the local white pine and hemlock used for the interior, giving the new home a sense of belonging in the woods. As the home is surrounded on all sides by forest, the homeowners wisely chose to forgo window treatments.
RUSTIC CHIC INSIDE THE CITY LIMITS
BONFIRE COUNTRY BARBonfire Country Bar prides itself on authentic country cooking. To create the visual counterpoint to the cuisine, they turned to Eastern White Pine for the interior of this resto-bar located in Manchester, New Hampshire. Vertical tongue and groove boards line the establishment, transporting you out of the bustling New England city into the country.
BRINGING THE OUTSIDE IN
A RIVERSIDE RETREATNestled in the woods next to a lake is a cabin retreat featured on the DIY Network television show Maine Cabin Masters. The quaint place leverages Eastern White Pine’s biophilic nature to add a sense of calm and joy to the cabin. This natural emotive quality – the ability to lower blood pres- sure and raise a smile – cannot be replicated by composite products designed to trick the senses.
NATURAL SELECTION MADE EASY
LUCKY PINES ESTATEModern architecture loves to play with striking combina- tions. Sometimes this is color or pattern. But, more and more, it happens with materials and textures. Lucky Pines is a collection of buildings that include a “rustic industrial” modern house featuring a playful counterbalance of mature pine trees as structural columns, both “knotty” pine and plas- ter, a poured concrete wall, and exposed aggregate fireplace. Stainless steel appliances offer the starkest contract within the warm golden glow of Eastern White Pine.
HOOP DREAMS OF EASTERN WHITE
BASKETBALL COURTThe Boston Garden was famous for its parquet floor. This gorgeous court will go down in history for its Eastern White Pine walls. Light streaks through the windows surrounding the court, adding to the warmth offered by the Eastern White Pine. Designed and built for a lumber mill owner, the mas- sive playroom is a testament to the versatility when design- ing and building with Eastern White Pine.
