The Club at 12 Oaks: The Clubhouse

A Classical Studio was commissioned to design the clubhouse and landscape for the new clubhouse in The Club at 12 Oaks in North Carolina, a luxury golf and residential neighborhood. The immaculate grounds and golf course, created by the legendary artists at Nicklaus Design Group, are one part of this entire lifestyle community that boasts serene parks, beautiful homes and even a community garden.

The clubhouse is 7,800 square feet that ACS started to plan in December 2013. From the very first pencil mark ACS drafted amenities, access and the essence of luxury down to the tiniest cement block. ACS made sure the design would reflect the Carolina region by merging traditional Carolina architecture, classical and vernacular styles, The result is a clubhouse that fits seamlessly into the meticulously designed community.

The clubhouse will contain locker rooms for golf members and a full time bar and restaurant. It also features event spaces for hosting parties, corporate gatherings and weddings.

Opening April 2016. Learn more: 12oaksgolfclub.com/clubhouse/

A Modern House with a Classical Feel

Modern homes are not often considered classical, but you might be surprised that certain elements are very similar. This home is going to certainly look and feel modern, with exposed edges, expansive spaces and large open windows, images that would typically pop into your mind when you think of a modern home, but it is the elements of plan, circulation and organization in the footprint of the house that correlate to classical architecture. The proportion’s and balance that classical architecture demand will be present in this home as well.

In addition to the architecture, WB Interiors was hired to design the interior. Using cutting edge materials, pops of color to bring warmth and accent the minimalist feel of the home we are sure this is going to be one incredibly beautiful modern home.
