Private Club - McLean, VA
Architecture, Incorporated was selected to design the renovation of this landmark private club. Originally designed in 1986, the facility was due for updates. The owners sought to reposition the club and offer an atmosphere compelling to a younger demographic, while maintaining the elegance and exclusivity that has defined the space for decades. The existing atrium stair was replaced with a new feature bar, the center of focus under an impressive barrel vaulted skylight. Renovations included virtually all of the public areas of the facility, with emphasis on the expanded formal ballroom, feature bar, lounge and formal dining room. Interior finishes and lighting created an environment of elegance, while the use of contrasting colors and textures, and indirect accent lighting reinforced the prestigious atmosphere.
