Library Demolition / by Shana Reiss

The Morro Bay Library interior demolition is underway! The construction is expected to take approximately 6 months and voilà–a completely NEW interior that unifies the building and takes advantage of the voluminous spaces. These images show exposed steel frames that act as the main structure of the building, partially demolished dropped t-bar ceiling, and exposed utilities. The proposed non-load bearing walls have been chalked on the concrete floor and T. Simons Co. Inc. (general contractor) is preparing to saw-cut the slab to install waste lines for the new restrooms. Pei-en (our intern!) is shown with the Reiss Design Studio job-site banner that she designed.
