Our Architecture Firm Demonstrates Excellence in the Kansas City Area Through These Unique Community Spaces
When home construction companies or real estate developers plan a new residential development with a focus on fostering community among residents, one of the leading desirable amenities is the subdivision clubhouse, sometimes called an amenity center.
The clubhouse becomes a community destination for area residents – it’s for gathering, for play, and for building community. A planned suburban neighborhood typically provides this amenity to add value – and thoughtful clubhouse architecture is necessary to its success and function. A comfortable scale and warmth through both aesthetics and function is something NSPJ is known for in our clubhouse designs.
But clubhouses aren’t just for residential communities. Country clubs and event centers also seek amenities spaces that require the same degree of care in design and planning.
NSPJ Architects has established our architecture firm as one of the best in the Kansas City area for designing highly recognizable and highly respected clubhouses. Take a look at four of our favorites, and view our clubhouse architecture portfolio on our website for other excellent examples.
Clubhouse Architecture Highlight #1: Sundance Ridge Amenity Center
In collaboration with Rodrock Development, Phelps Engineering, and Epic Pools, our architecture firm designed a modern farmhouse-style amenity center for Sundance Ridge, a housing development along 175th Street, east of Mission Road to State Line Road in Overland Park, Kansas.
Both indoor and outdoor amenities combine to form this distinctive community offering spanning 4,000 square feet. Inside, residents find workout facilities, an indoor gymnasium, conference rooms, bar, and common area that overlooks the swimming pool complex.
Outside, the pool complex includes lap lanes and a zero-entry pool with splash pads. Water slides and fountains add to the summer fun. NSPJ’s landscape architects nestled playgrounds, picnic areas, and courts for bocce and pickle ball in the surroundings. Walking trails link the neighborhoods, park areas, water features, and even an idyllic orchard.
Clubhouse Architecture Highlight #2: Mills Farm
A hot new neighborhood according to 435 Magazine, Mills Farm is one of Johnson County’s most distinguished planned communities in Overland Park.
Not only do the land plan and streetscapes promote a sense of community, but the clubhouse architecture works as an extension of that, designed to feel like a custom home that blends seamlessly with other houses of varying style and sizes throughout the neighborhood.
Situated along the entry boulevard, the clubhouse also serves as the sales office, so potential buyers grasp just how special the community is before they ultimately make their decision to call it home.
Clubhouse Architecture Highlight #3: Hallbrook Amenity Center
With a growing roster of members, Hallbrook Country Club in Leawood, Kansas saw a need for a larger amenity center to meet the needs of those who frequent their grounds.
The original fitness room was just 1,100 square feet – and Hallbrook asked our architecture firm to triple its size. Even more amenities accompanied this addition, including a new pool bathhouse, indoor bar, pro shop, tennis viewing area, lounge, outdoor fireplace, room for sunbathing, and protected tennis viewing areas.
Members of Hallbrook Country Club who enjoy the pool area also can now enjoy a meal without changing out of their swimwear, thanks to a dining area meant to withstand wet suits.
Clubhouse Architecture Highlight #4: Davidson Farms
One of the architecture firm’s most unique clubhouse designs is located at Davidson Farms, created for a residential development’s year-round use. Positioned near a 3-acre lake, this clubhouse affords 2,340 square feet inside, with 1,500 square feet of outdoor living space.
Outdoors, community members can enjoy scenic walking trails, parks, and a family pool; inside, they enjoy a reservable party room and kitchen. Outdoor program areas include a covered pergola, grills, and an outdoor fireplace.
The architectural design honors the legacy of the Davidson family, who ventured west in 1832 from Kentucky to Missouri. Thus, this clubhouse space was designed to resemble a barn, with a contemporary twist that can be described as refined rustic.
