FOUNDATION WORK UNDERWAY AT 16TH STREET

Footings have been poured and foundation walls are being laid for the 3 story extension and renovation of the townhouse that we designed at 297 16th Street in Park Slope. The three story addition will be framed out with parallel 8” reinforced concrete block bearing walls and 24 foot span steel c-joists. The framing of the existing two story wood framed portion of the house will largely remain, but the building will be completely gutted with new cladding and windows.

The rear façade of the existing house will be removed as the superstructure for the addition goes up, connecting the old and new portions.

Upon completion, the house will be a new two family dwelling with a three story unit facing the rear garden with floor to ceiling steel framed windows. Upon entering, a sunken living and dining area will feature a polished concrete slab with radiant floor heating, offsetting the wood clad wall adorning an open steel stair.
