There’s so much talk these days about the happenings up in Beacon, New York, from the Dia:Beacon, undoubtedly the area’s biggest attraction, to the locally sourced restaurants lining the Hudson. And if you’re hoping to make this upstate getaway longer than just a day trip, the Roundhouse at Beacon Falls can accommodate much more than just your overnight stay.
Aryeh Siegel, unofficial “architect of Beacon,” was enlisted by developer Robert A. McAlpine to restore and adaptively resue the buildings on this 9-acre, 19th century industrial site located on the Fishkill Creek. They were transformed into a complex including a hotel, restaurant, and event space. Historically appropriate, modern private residences were added, and the former power house is being reconstructed to provide hydro-electric power, which will account for 60% of the hotel’s energy. The Rockwell Group outfitted the hotel and restaurant interiors with a contemporary yet rustic design esthetic, incorporating pieces from local artisans.
