PHX Architecture Places #1 in Clubhouse Renovation

Scottsdale, AZ, June 21, 2015 --( The Design Team led by PHX Architecture Awarded 1st Place by Golf Inc. for Local “Clubhouse Renovation” (DC Ranch Clubhouse) in Golf Inc’s Clubhouse of the Year Awards.

The Design Team, led by PHX Architecture, is honored to place 1st in Golf Inc.’s Clubhouse of the Year annual award competition in the “Clubhouse Renovation” category for the remodel of local "DC Ranch Clubhouse." For the past several years, this global competition has recognized clubhouses from around the world.

PHX Architecture’s Principal, Erik Peterson AIA, along with Project Manager, Michael Nielson AIA; Interior Designer, Beth McGehee; and Wespac Construction partnered together to remodel the popular DC Ranch Clubhouse. For the initial phase of renovation, the design team was asked to reconfigure and expand the member dining, private dining, and bar areas to address the current needs of membership, while refreshing and enhancing the club’s signature character. They were able to execute a major renovation of the clubhouse while maintaining its original rustic charm and response from the membership has been extremely positive.

From the onset-one of the key design goals was to ensure that the project evoked the same hand-crafted richness, warmth, and Western style that the members were originally drawn to. The interior finishes reflect a well-heeled ranch and though mostly new, the design elements throughout, including found objects and furnishings, were selected to feel as if they may have been collected over the years by a ranching family. The natural materials of adobe, embossed leather, tumbled brick, aged forged iron, patina copper, reclaimed wood and pierced suede are woven together to paying tasteful respect to the southwestern heritage.
