entrenched patterns of existing residents
who, in some cases, had "claimed" a particular room (the billiards room) as their
own. The design team was charged with
re-creating spaces to disrupt some of
these ingrained behavior patterns without making the disruption apparent.
With new leadership coming on
board mid-project, budget was also a
challenge. Financing had already been
released and could not be adjusted; as a
result, funding was stretched to accommodate the shift in operational focus. In
addition, tight timeframes were a critical
factor in material selections and fabrication details. The team pre-vetted all
selections for stock availability and lead
time even as they worked to rebrand

Jury comments:
* Relocating the space makes it
become a more resident social
environment. It is a bright and airy
space.
* Clubroom renovation with high
ceiling is nice.
* Color and materiality accentuate
the function and spirit of each of the
spaces. Daylight plays a significant
role in informing the use of color,
pattern, and texture.
* This has the most dramatic change! It
definitely has a more modern
look and feel.
The design
flows more
easily into each
space without
overdoing it.
