Location: Fishkill, NY

This location, in the heart of the historic district of the Village of Fishkill was previously occupied by a decrepit shingle style house that had been substantially and insensitively altered over time. This structure needed to be demolished, and Tinkelman Architecture was requested by the Village board to re-imagine what the structure might have resembled, and use that as the starting point for the design of the new facility. T.A, using a combination of its imagination, careful research on the Shingle and Stick styles, and paying heed to the scale and texture of the neighborhood, produced a design that has been well received by the Village, reducing the time taken to obtain municipal approvals and allow the bank to open in a timely manner.
