  • Long Cove Club
    Hilton Head Island, South Carolina

BACKGROUND

One look out the expansive windows of the original Long Cove Club made it clear: the view is the club. So when Long Cove decided it was time to update their club and enhance its functionality, Chambers knew that the first task was to bring that Low Country beauty inside and simply polish the gem that was the existing space.

Chambers’ approach focused on maintaining the club’s integrity but making it more functional.

OUR APPROACH

Long Cove Club is the centerpiece of its residential community, but over time its members came to see that the club's spaces were poorly connected, so events and activities had no room to flow. Chambers' approach focused on maintaining the club's integrity but making it more functional. A multi-level addition provided much-needed storage, a new kitchen and a dining room that can be opened to other rooms for larger events. Clever details like pocket doors not only look appropriate and elegant, but optimize the flow and flexibility of the space.

RESULTS

From the terraces and brick walls that enhance the exterior, the remodeled existing portions of the clubhouse and the sensitively designed interior spaces, Long Cove pays homage to its Low Country setting. The muted, soft colors bring the tones of the marshlands and sunsets. And the ultimate success of Long Cove is seen in how often its members say that the club feels like home.
