Forest Park, St. Louis, Missouri (2002)

PBA was commissioned by Forest Park Forever to design a golf clubhouse that would serve the three golf courses in Forest Park. The clubhouse provides a comfortable place for dining, recreation, and rest while maintaining a transparent quality within the landscape. Site selection and careful planning ensured that Forest Park’s beautiful landscape remained the focal point of this project. PBA’s goal was to design a building that met the highest standards of functionality, maintenance and beauty.

Lush wisteria entwining round the terrace trellises soften the building’s presence in the green landscape and filter the sunlight before it enters the building.  Walls of glass lend the impression of a shady porch to the building’s interior.  The modest, elegant clerestory provides the clubhouse with a quiet dignity that is befitting a Forest Park building.
