Moffett Towers Club


Project Description

As the centerpiece of a 52-acre corporate campus, the Moffett Towers Club serves as a world-class fitness and spa facility, as well as an upscale destination for large company meetings and informal gatherings.

The club takes its design cues from the surrounding buildings, yet its unique character is created by symbols from both the natural environment and aviation. A striking point-counterpoint of curves and linear forms is apparent in the light-filled, two-story lobby, which is surrounded by glass and steel elements. Other rich materials work together to create a luxurious and relaxing environment.

The club’s interior design references natural forms such as ginkgo leaves and reeds, bringing a sense of natural tranquility indoors. The leaf pattern is carried through in the details of the stamped concrete flooring and in  carpeting. The color palette takes advantage of the light in each space, according to the building’s orientation. FSC-certified cherry wood, locally fabricated custom-cast concrete, recycled-content ceramic tile and Greenguard-certified furniture are among the sustainable materials used in the LEED Gold-certified facility.

First-floor amenities include a day spa, a café with indoor and outdoor seating and a game room. The 25-yard, seven-lane, solar-heated pool accommodates lap swimming, as well as therapeutic rehabilitation programs. The gymnasium boasts a full-size court with equipment for both basketball and volleyball, and the building’s second floor includes a state-of-the-art fitness center, as well as group exercise studios.
