BACKGROUND

Country Club of Orlando, which began its rich history in 1911, is one of the oldest country clubs in the state. Its distinction is also seen in its 50,000-square-foot Mizner-inspired clubhouse.

...winner of the DESIGN SHOWCASE, in the Category of "Total Clubhouse, New Construction."

OUR APPROACH

Chambers re-created the original Spanish-Mediterranean style of the building with a rich stucco finish, cast stone trim and custom roofing tile. Distinguishing features of the club include the 44-foot high octagon Entry Hall, with an oversized window framing a striking view of the lake and golf course. Overlooking the double-height Reception Lounge is an upper balcony with a hand-rubbed iron balustrade finished to give an aged bronze appearance. The ceiling features a double-tiered wood chandelier and large wood beams supported by carved brackets. Arched windows with multiple glass doors allow access to a large stone terrace complete with fountain and panoramic views of the adjacent lake and golf course. The 20-foot tall Grand Ballroom is highlighted by five beaded crystal chandeliers and 23 wall sconces finished in antique gold.
