Studioteka celebrates Demo Day for our West Village Duplex Apartment Project!

August 7, 2019

Demo day has finally arrived for our duplex apartment renovation project in the West Village! So funny to watch the wall in the living room come down in just a few minutes—did we really need an engineer for that? Clearly not structural! We’re on a tight schedule but this crew is definitely up to the challenge. Check back with us soon for more updates and let us know what we can do for you!

We had to get a sealed letter from a structural engineer to take down this wall. The hole in the ceiling is from where we took measurements and did a probe. It was revealed pretty quickly to be non structural!
This thing was definitely not holding up the roof!
All in all it took less than 10 minutes to knock the entire thing down.
Look at how much more open the living room is going to be!
Moldings were also removed, along with the old parquet flooring which had seen better days!
The team inspecting the closet space where an access door is going to be placed for the new location of the hot water heater.
How many contractors fit in here?
These stairs are going to be completely redone, can’t wait for the finished results!
