The Park Country Club of Buffalo

In 2016, HHL was engaged to design interior renovations to the existing 1927-built English-Scholastic Style Clubhouse. Improvements to 10,500 sq. ft. of existing member-use areas included Main Entry, Main Dining Halls, Loggias, Private Dining Rooms and Men’s and Women’s Toilet Rooms were undertaken. These areas had last been completely renovated in 1991. All toilet facilities were renovated within their existing footprint to keep costs within budget. New patterned carpet, stone tile floors/wall finishes and custom millwork with Gothic-inspired detailing to complement the existing Arts and Crafts Clubhouse interiors was installed. Custom faux paint finishes were implemented at the ornate plaster fireplaces and stained woodwork was carefully restored/refinished. New period-inspired lighting replaced existing non-original lighting.

A new air-conditioning and ventilation system was installed to serve the Main Clubhouse Dining Halls, which can accommodate over 250 occupants. Large air-handling equipment was set on the roof of the central Gothic stone tower, concealed from view. The design and installation was clever and seamless, with no visual evidence of any system components (equipment, ductwork etc.) or adverse acoustic impact. The project was completed in 2017 and was on budget at $750,000.
