Location: Poughkeepsie, NY
This project, located on a magnificent site along the Hudson River in Poughkeepsie, is an exercise in place making and architectural form giving. The master plan involved the siting and design of four individual retail/restaurant buildings as well as amenities such as a riverfront promenade, marina, boat launch, and public open spaces. Tinkelman Architecture was selected to create an architectural identify for all buildings and outdoor dining and public spaces. Design touchstones included Poughkeepsie’s architectural past as well as appropriate references from the Hudson Valley area, infused with a modern sensibility that posits a path for future development in Poughkeepsie. In addition to overall building design, Tinkelman Architecture worked with the developer to produce space layouts for prospective tenants and has provided imagery for web based and print marketing efforts.
