Watchcase Condominiums, Sag Harbor
Design Architect: Beyer Blinder Belle Architects
Executive Architect: Baldassano Associates
Interior Design: S.R. Gambrel
Cape Advisors completed the development of The Watchcase Condominiums in 2015. Watchcase is a signature example of historic preservation and adaptive reuse which includes 63 condominiums and amenities located in over 200,000 square feet. The rehabilitation protected the factory and site’s historic integrity and respected its important position within the fabric of Sag Harbor Village while following best practices in green building. Cleaning and re-using over 30,000 original bricks, re-pointing of all of the masonry with historically correct lime based two color mortar and extensive repair and replacement of over 500 original southern yellow pine beams are only a few examples of the meticulous restoration.

The interiors with exposed beams, brick walls and timber ceilings are combined with a layered materiality. The project invokes a classic sensibility that combines modern and traditional interiors, designed by acclaimed AD100 designer Steven Gambrel, while paying homage the building’s industrial roots. The meticulously landscaped courtyards and green roofs complement the vast volumes of open air and endless views at the site.
