ABOUT THE MARITIME

The Hudson Valley Maritime Museum is located at Quiet Cove Park in Poughkeepsie, NY. This site has a panoramic views of the Hudson River and creates a strong symbolic connection between the museum and river. The Maritime Museum emerges one into the different elevation environments that a vessel may encounter.                               
     The architectural design of this Museum uses Modern elements and incorporates historical elements of the neoclassical era; a common style used in the city of Poughkeepsie. The facades of the building gives the building a clean and dynamic visual of flowing water such as that a river embodies. Grand open spaces and tall curtain windows, with mullions staggered vertically up and down, allows guests to be engaged with the Hudson River at all times.
           Upon arriving at the museum, one will walk into the lobby onto the first floor called the SEA LEVEL, This level consists of a main gallery space where one can learn how the construction of boats evolved throughout the ages. The center of the museum’s main gallery space will have a replica of the Halve Maen; the first ship to sail the Hudson River. Office spaces on this floor are placed farther away from high traffic spaces in effort to create a quiet and peaceful work environment. One can ascend and descend to different floors by using the Pod elevator or the ADA certified stairways. The basement level also known as the OCEAN FLOOR level is an experience underwater to view historical treasures recovered from sunken ships. The second level is named the BEACH LEVEL, this level is where guests can relax, grab a drink or bite to eat and can be in a tranquil state of mind. On this level one can view the sublime scenery of the Hudson River from the large outdoor deck or the isolated garden only accessible by supported truss bridge. In addition the level has a low-luminesce gallery to protect light sensitive pieces of history.             Sustainability is another critical aspect of our project. The Hudson River’s water quality has improved since the 1960s. Many noxious discharges have ceased, but leftovers from past pollution haunt the Hudson, and new problems are becoming evident. The Museum’s construction and life-cycle are important to prevent further harm to the River and the surrounding environment. This will be done by striving to surpass LEED platinum certification for achieving zero-net energy consumption, and zero waste production. Green technologies like solar panels for energy production, geothermal energy to heat the radiant floor heating, will be incorporated to maximize the full potential of green design.
