Scenic Hudson’s Boat Pavilion Receives AIANY Award

AIANY Design Awards, Merit Award for Scenic Hudson’s Boat Pavilion at Long Dock Park – 2012

AIA New York’s annual Design Awards Program recognizes outstanding architectural design by New York City architects and for work in New York City. The purpose of the awards program is to honor the architects, clients, and consultants who work together to achieve design excellence.

Scenic Hudson’s Boat Pavilion at Long Dock Park, built by Kirchhoff-Consigli received this year’s Merit Award.

A former brownfield once littered with tons of debris now boasts a 2,700-square-foot painted steel boathouse on the bank of the Hudson River within a new 15-acre park.  The roof is a horizontal plane of corrugated steel that parallels a large sustainable-wood deck from which boats launch.  Secure storage for up to 64 kayaks and canoes, a changing room, and a storage area are enclosed by aluminum bar grating panels.  Hidden from view, photovoltaic cells on the roof power lights for the pavilion and the park while feeding power back into the grid.
