Architect Provides Insight on Canoe Place Inn Through Blog

Scott Pollack posted the blog on Aarrowstreetlive.com on Dec. 4.

Scott Pollack, a Boston-based architect working with Gregg and Mitchell Rechler of R Squared LLC on a proposed restoration of Canoe Place Inn in Hampton Bays shared his thoughts on the historic site earlier this month in a blog he posted on Aarrowstreetlive.com.

In his blog, Pollack discusses the history of the Inn and the many different forms it has taken since it was first built in 1923 and relates it to his task to renovate it. 

"Understanding that history and working with the community on a consensus regarding which elements of the building best reflect the role Canoe Place has played and should play in the life of Hampton Bays was an important key to the design and approval of this project," wrote Pollack.

Currently, Pollack said, the design plan "preserves the 1927 inn building and dance pavilion and the half-round 'porch' expansion, as well as the second-floor porches, roof forms, and tall brick chimneys."

He wrote, "We have concentrated on recapturing the character of the place by restoring the full height of the first floor, creating a new drop-off area, improving the landscaping and removing those additions that detract from the character of the building and designing new parts that enhance the look and update the functioning of the inn into the 21st century."

Who said they are selling it? I seem to have missed that in any of the stories on this. Of course there is the point that if they did sell it and make a profit (because anyone else would of course NOT want to make a profit) how would that be a bad thing?
