Hollyburn Country Club Addition
West Vancouver, B.C.
Year in Showcase: 2010
The functional plan for an addition to Hollyburn Country Club was defined by the opportunities found within the constraints of the site. As such, the addition maintains connectivity to the existing club facility, as well as protects and complements the protected fish-bearing streams on each side of the property and the mountain slopes found throughout the area.
The addition was positioned on the southwest side of the existing building. As the new amenities were located some distance from the main entry, careful planning was necessary to create logical connections, specifically from the existing club locker room and social areas to the new program spaces. Core elements include a two-level fitness center (which replaced an existing basement facility), a fitness studio, a multiuse room with an outdoor deck, a leisure pool with an outdoor deck and a new 25-meter lap pool within an existing structure. Support amenities include spa and physiotherapy spaces, as well as fitness staff offices. Existing spaces were repurposed during the renovation to complement the additions.
A crucial requirement of the interior architecture was to integrate the additions with the recently redecorated club interiors. A contemporary expression was pursued by combining elemental architectural use of cast-in-place concrete, window walls and glulam beams with a neutral color palette. On the exterior, the objective was to create a unified expression between the new and existing buildings. Paramount to the design was the notion that the mountainside setting and spectacular views remain the focal point.
