Pinehurst Country Club
Village of Pinehurst, North Carolina
THE DESIGN TEAM has worked closely with Pinehurst Resort for nearly a decade to create and execute an architectural and conceptual master plan. In 2012, we began select aspects of the renovations including dining and ballrooms that overlook the iconic number 2 course by design legend Donald Ross. The project was unveiled at the 2014 U.S. Open and U.S. Women’s Open. The renovations have resulted in a 30 percent surge in club membership.
The concept for the interior design was to create a space that celebrates nature and the storied past of Pinehurst by introducing a fresh interpretation of traditional and organic motifs. Interior finishes, furniture, and lighting were selected to brighten the space, provide moments of hand-crafted design, and create an atmosphere that provides the backdrop to the Southern hospitality felt by all who visit.
The color palette mimics nature through the use of greens with accents of blue and red. A floral Morris fabric pattern was selected for the drapery in the ballroom. This fabric frames the true beauty which is seen beyond the windows. Handcrafted pine cone tiles, paired with red brick added texture and character, all while giving the illusion that the fireplace had been there since Pinehurst was first built. Hardwood floors, painted finishes, simple fabric, upholstery, and carpet specifications in a classic pallet keeps the room simple, fresh, and easy to maintain.
