Pinehurst Main Lobby
Village of Pinehurst, North Carolina
GLAVÉ & HOLMES has collaborated with Pinehurst Resort in the Village of Pinehurst, North Carolina for more than five years on a comprehensive restoration and refurbishment of their five main buildings; the Holly Inn of 1895, the Carolina Hotel of 1901, and later structures such as the Member’s Country Club, the Manor Inn, and the Golf Villas. The process has been governed by a Conceptual Master Plan executed in 2006 following an extensive process of research, team charrettes, and presentations to the owner and major stakeholders. This process followed Glavé & Holmes’ proprietary P.O.E.T.I.C. Design Method in which the designers, architects, and key resort professionals examine the Place, Occupants, and the Experience in order to codify this information into a Transcendent Idea that guides the process and generates Concepts. This methodology assures that all decisions from architecture, interior design, FF&E, signage, branding, landscape, and even resort programming are unified under a single, clearly defined identity.
