Mitchells of Westport
High-end finishes included imported stonework for walls and floors, venetian plaster, herringbone wood floors, splayed ceilings, and extensive millwork. The exterior portion of this project included a structural transformation of the roof, opening up two large clearstory skylights for the main floor. An additional 4,000 square feet was excavated underneath the store for a sliding storage rack system. The building’s facade was removed and reworked using a combination of thin brick, stucco, storefront glass, and extensive metal work. The site drainage, landscaping, and parking lot were upgraded.
All work was completed on schedule in a nine month period while the store was open for business, “not losing a day of business,” as quoted by the owner.
TRITEC has also constructed Richards of Greenwich and Marshs of Huntington and Vineyard Vines of Greenwich for the Mitchells.
