Working with Studioteka Design was a wonderful experience. They took my renovation project to heart and brought it to completion in record time; way ahead of schedule. They are consummate professionals with remarkable technical expertise. Vanessa proved to be a brilliant architect who brought a special concern to my specific needs. I could always count on her to promptly return my calls and to provide me with the timely feedback necessary to keep the project on track. I can think of very few professionals I have dealt with whom I can recommend as unreservedly as Vanessa for their expertise and for their integrity.

I moved into my apartment on Riverside Drive a year ago and I have been searching for a Team to handle a total renovation project. I selected Studioteka from Bark and it was the best decision ever! Vanessa and her Team are very dynamic, professional and results oriented . Within a month’s time she put together a whole team from her network to support every aspect of the project and we are almost ready to go! What I have gained from partnering with Vanessa Keith is an efficient planner, an advocate and supporter of my vision for the project as well as the ability to find flexible solutions when we encounter a challenge. I am really thrilled and looking forward to working with Vanessa and Team!

I hired Studioteka Design to rework a commercial space for my lounge in Astoria and they did an absolutely fantastic job. Vanessa and her very dedicated team are extremely efficient and knowledgeable, they work fast, they listen, and they pulled out all the stops on the design and supervised every detail of the construction. We’re now open and everyone is telling me how great our space looks and asking me who our designer was! If you’ve got a project and need a great architect or designer you should definitely contact Studioteka, you really can’t go wrong. Highly recommend.

Studioteka Design, LLC Q&A

How can someone tell if their Garage is suitable for conversion?

We can help you apply for permits to add new plumbing, electrical or air conditioning to the space, as well as making sure your city or town will approve the job before the work even gets started. Does the garage need any repairs in order to be converted? Does it need new insulation, heating, air conditioning, or more electrical? If you schedule a walk-through with us, we can tell you the answer! Does the town you're in allow you to add an extension or convert a space from one use to another? Are you over your allowable floor area, or not? How much can you build, and where can you put an addition, would it work on the ground floor or the second story of the house? We can answer all these questions and more if you hire us to do a preliminary zoning analysis. So reach out and give us a call!

How can someone tell if their loft is suitable for conversion?

It really depends on what you want to do with it! This question is a bit general, but if you want to get into the specifics of it, I'd be more than happy to set up a call with you to discuss. Just reach out to me!

Run us through the different stages in the loft conversion process - what’s involved?

First we set up a time to discuss your loft/space and the dream list of what you'd like to do with it. Then we schedule a walk through to look at the space and talk about what can go where and assess viability and preliminary rough costs of different options. Next we do a few schemes in consultation with you showing you different potential layouts based on your criteria, you choose one, we draw it up and put it through the building department for approvals, and two weeks later you've got your permits and we are good to go!

What’s your interior design process?

We work very closely with the client, because we feel that the best design comes out of true synergy and understanding our clients' needs. We look at the client's goals for the project, as well as getting a sense of their style, taste, schedule, and budget. Then we come up with a plan and move forward! We love creating beautiful, dream spaces that really fit with how our clients live their lives or do business. And the client is always in control of the project and the budget. We are your advocate, we help make everything easier, and streamline the entire process, and we negotiate good deals on your behalf with vendors, suppliers, contractors and consultants on an as needed basis.

Which interior design styles can you cater for?

We love contemporary design, but with warmth--clean and modern doesn't have to be cold and soulless! We also love merging traditional spaces and detailing, such as a Victorian home, with more modern accent furniture pieces. And no matter what, the space should feel like it was made for you! We can work easily across a wide range of styles.

What do you love most about your job?

I love transformations. I love designing a space that truly fits what my client needs, and I love finding a way to bring out the very best in any space through lighting, color, materials and contrasts.

What inspired you to start your own business?

I got a project and I just jumped! My first client came to me through a family friend, and I realized that being able to work more directly with clients was something that gave me a lot of joy and inspiration. And I've been doing just that ever since!

Why should our clients choose you?

You should choose me because I'm a talented and savvy designer, and most importantly, I care about you and your project, however big or small. I know that this project means a lot to you, so you will never be a number to me. And working together to figure it out will also be fun! I'm passionate about green and sustainable design and saving the planet, and also recently published a book on design solutions for the future.
