Lansdowne Resort and conference center turned to Chambers to create a golf club in keeping with the luxurious facility’s amenities and noted conference center. The impressive 43,000-square-foot clubhouse now stands as a true landmark in this world-class resort facility, serving both private club members and Lansdowne’s resort guests.
Chambers styled the clubhouse to echo the classic Virginia country house, respecting the tradition of this historic area. Overlooking the Potomac River Valley, surrounded by a beautiful forest, this magnificent two-level clubhouse evokes the feel of a comfortable country estate through the use of natural exterior materials including stone gables, antique “Old Dominion” brick and copper standing-seam accent roofs. The clubhouse is connected to the adjacent hotel by a new covered walkway, providing easy access for members and resort guests.
The interiors of the clubhouse depart from the traditional country club furnishings and lean to a more transitional style while still providing a comfortable residential feel. The project also included the addition of two free-form recreational pools to the existing resort pool. In addition to the new recreational pools, a children’s splash fountain and a tower slide were added for family entertainment.
