This existing amenity building for an established 55+ community was in dire need of renovation and expansion to accommodate increasing resident membership and to provide a refreshed look to the interior. The renovation focused on expanding and reconfiguring the dining and bar areas and raising the ceilings to create a more open and inviting dining experience. 

The new design gives nods to the Southwestern influences and is cohesive with the newer adjacent amenity buildings. Walls of glass were added to this enlarged footprint, optimizing views of the golf course lake, while flooding the space with light.  The distinctive color palette is bright and speaks to the community’s identity with a layering of details and juxtaposition of materials, custom designed seating, and case pieces. The finishing touches are an array of warm, glowing lighting, contrasted with bright splashes of color represented in original artwork.  

From the Judges
The team did a great job of recreating and updating the space. The judges noted the warmth of the space and the materials.
