South Haven Marina Northside
South Haven, Michigan
The city of South Haven approved the replacement of the Northside Marina, one of four municipal marinas on the Black River. The new marina was completed in 2013. SKP Design was hired to select interior materials and finishes as well as the interior and site furniture.
The design of the interior provides accommodations for boaters and offers a kitchen, boater's lounge, shower facilities, laundry and picnic areas. The interior furniture was designed to be flexible, with dining and lounge furniture. Accessories were chosen to follow a nautical theme. Table lamps are made from reclaimed drift wood, and nautical maps are framed and hanging throughout the space. The color scheme is neutrals with accents of blue. Boat slips range from 30 to 60 feet, and offer 50-amp electric service. The marina offers an outstanding view of the many riverfront activities including Riverfront Concerts, Harborfest, and the Blueberry Festival. A scenic boardwalk winds along the riverfront, connecting the marina to the beaches and business district.
