This luxury community amenity area and clubhouse were both designed by our office to nestle into the existing native forest overlooking the meandering Catawba River. We minimized construction cost by terracing down the sloped site and in doing so created several activity zones, each with their own program. To blur the transitions we brought into the landscape low stone seat walls with exposed portions to mimic remnants from historic structural foundations. Plant material selected reinforces the surrounding woodland edge, with a few pockets of lively grasses and bold, colorful perennials.
