Set in the open fields of the Connecticut valley, inspiration for Heirloom Flats sparked from its rich tobacco farming history. The vibe is rustic but current, with amenities promoting good health and good food in a farm-to-table atmosphere. Its a building where people can interact, get to know each other and create a real community.
The architectural style is an abstraction of the historic factory aesthetic prevalent along the Connecticut River Valley. When you walk in, these spaces don't feel new, they feel familiar and reminiscent of something older. A timber-framed portico greets residents as they enter. Slats of reclaimed shiplap line the walls of the amenity space. Overhead, planks sourced on-site and milled in Connecticut stretch across the ceiling. Bright, mid-Century modern furniture and a collection of cookbooks and antique copper pots create a sense of simple charm and lived-in comfort.
Its a space that feels like its been there for ages, but is still very modern, crisp and fresh.
