The Park Country Club of Buffalo

In the Summer of 2013, the construction of the West End Modernization project at the Park Country Club was completed. This culminated from the Expansion & Renovations Study that HHL prepared in 2011. The project comprised of an addition, and interior renovations to the 1927-built English Scholastic Style Clubhouse. The club’s desire was for increased member casual dining/bar space and capacity. The HHL design is sympathetic to, and contextual with the original clubhouse detailing and design byacclaimed early 20th century clubhouse architect Clifford C. Wendehack.

The elegantly curved gable-form of the member’s Grille/Bar addition was constructed of heavy timber with matching brick and stone, heavy slate roofs, metal doors, and windows. Interiors are consistent with the Arts & Crafts style with colorful patterned carpet floors, coarse plaster walls and ceilings, and hand-hewn wood timber roof trusses. Related work included restoration of the original 800 square foot octagonal shaped Grille Room space and the member’s informal entry.
