Golf Amenity and Clubhouse Architecture

Clubhouse Architecture"Our club was fortunate to have Anne on our team as the lead architect on a $12MM clubhouse project. We engaged her services from the master planning stage and she stayed with us until the end. Anne understood our budget was fixed and did an outstanding job of using her experience in the clubhouse design business to squeeze every bit of program we could into that budget. She was proactive and extremely knowledgeable of the unique challenges in building a private clubhouse. We could not be happier with her work and would highly recommend that anyone considering a substantial building project get Anne involved as early as possible."   
Ty Stone, President, The Savannah Golf Club

The clubhouse, whether for golf, tennis or an entire community, is the heart of the community and functions as a home-away-from-home. Culture is important for these buildings, and we listen closely to your input to create a venue designed around your club’s culture. The designs of H. Anne Blakely Sciarrone Architecture reflect the unique personality of your club or community. Our goal is to provide the perfect backdrop for lasting memories that your members will savor for years to come.

Clubhouse spaces aren’t like other designs. Proper execution of master planning and clubhouse architecture, design and renovation requires specialized expertise. We understand the nuances of clubhouse and amenity designs such as working within and around the facility’s programming, budgeting and scheduling. With private member-owned clubs, we know how to best communicate with club boards, committees and members and are more than happy to listen to and work cooperatively with everyone involved. And as always, we are committed to approaching each project with sustainability in mind.

After exploring the options for renovating an existing 1963 clubhouse the design team and Club leadership determined that there would be more value in building a new clubhouse. Fortunately the Club membership overwhelmingly agreed.  The classic architecture of the new clubhouse captures the essence of Savannah and provides for an enhanced sense of arrival from a picturesque drive as you approach the club. The new location of the clubhouse allows for maximized views to both golf and tennis and provides more opportunities for outdoor activities.  The overall project also includes improved pool and tennis experiences for the Club members.

This project provided an overall campus master plan for improvements to the River Hills Club, a tennis and social club founded in the 1960’s. The plan called for the construction of a new clubhouse complex, improvements to the pool area, expansion of an existing indoor tennis and fitness facility as well as tennis court improvements.  The project renderings indicate the initial design released for bid just before Hurricane Katrina hit.  Due to the expected high demand for construction services the bids were much higher than the team had anticipated and we were forced into a redesign.  The design of this clubhouse was inspired by historic residential design of the Deep South and Delta Country. The new clubhouse houses a casual lounge, a member's dining room, a buffet room and other private dining/multi-purpose spaces in addition to locker rooms and a snack bar that services both the pool and tennis.

Tapestry Club, LeJardin, Atlanta, GA

Le Jardin Tapestry Club Rendering
There were two neighborhoods planned within Le Jardin, a development in South Fulton County, Georgia.  The Giverny and Tapestry neighborhoods were designed to be distinct yet both embrace the principles upon which Le Jardin was to be founded, respect for nature and the arts.  The community entrances and the clubhouse amenity architecture were inspired by the styles of old world France.

Tapestry was to be as diverse a neighborhood as the name implies. The plans for its clubhouse included an executive boardroom, a gathering hall, a fitness center and a gymnasium for its residents use.  The gymnasium was cleverly disguised from the front of the clubhouse with an arcade and by making use of the natural slope of the land, sinking the gym floor to a level below the main entry.
