The Claremont Country Club maintains historic building status by the City of Oakland. Phase I was an interior remodel of the ground floor recreation areas. Phase II & III were accelerated and consolidated into one project to meet the client’s aggressive timetable.
Phase II was an 8,000+ sf addition to the existing clubhouse, and was comprised of two distinct wings. The Ladies’ Lounge & Locker wing includes locker rooms, shower and bath areas, and a quaint sitting lounge. Atop the Lounge wing are mechanical and storage areas, housed within a new roof structure cut of several 16:12 gables. The Exercise wing includes cardio and weightlifting areas, a sprung-floor aerobic area, and an office. Above the exercise rooms is an exterior terrace, finished with cast pavers and bound by a parapet of cast stone. The addition is clad with Tudor style ornamental woodwork and acid-washed stucco.
Phase III was a new 3,500sf Poolhouse building, new swimming pools, and extensive sitework. The Poolhouse includes men’s and women’s locker and bath areas, storage and equipment areas, an office, and a full commercial kitchen. The Poolhouse elevations are finished with a combination of cedar siding, stucco, and wood trim. It is protected from the weather by a faux-slate tile roof, to match the new natural slate tile roof installed in Phase II. Design build MEP.
