BEARSPAW COUNTRY CLUB
architecture + interior design
Bearspaw Country Club ushers in a new era of golf with the opening of its new clubhouse in the Spring of 2018. Nestled in the Alberta foothills just outside of city limits, we designed a clubhouse that celebrates the breathtaking landscape that has captivated Bearspaw golfers for almost three decades.
Typically, clubhouse design references traditional aesthetics and iconic clubhouses from around the world, with an emphasis on formality and connection to tradition. We challenged this paradigm and settled on a concept that whole-heartedly embraces the community and the landscape, renewing the clubhouse’s relevance and establishing a new attitude of rustic luxury. We started the process by getting a comprehensive understanding of the site. The new clubhouse draws upon the language of the foothills and local building traditions rather than mock-tudor and Victorian architectural styles, resulting in an iconic yet appropriate building that is much more appropriate for the community.
