We’re no stranger to new build projects however, when our client asked us to work on their multifamily housing project, they also wanted us to help establish their brand’s aesthetic: stylish and relaxing environments with an emphasis on living well.
This clubhouse needed to attract and retain their ideal customer: young professionals looking for a luxurious retreat away from the city. Located in Upper Arlington, Berkley House is nestled in the suburban woods on the banks of the Scioto River. In designing Berkley House, we were involved from day one, including designing the construction plans, space planning, material selection, lighting, design of custom architectural elements, and of course, bringing Preferred Living’s brand to life. Our team designed a space that was hip and inviting with natural wood surfaces, exposed beams, vibrant wallpaper, and custom-designed components designed to emulate a posh, boutique hotel. We paired strong architectural elements with muted grays and velvety fabrics to create an environment full of rustic character that still felt clean and modern. The reception area features a custom designed front desk with geometric molding that is a nod to modern art. while the tawny wood of the desk reflects the clubhouse’s rustic setting. A duo of custom made billiards tables sits in the center of the lounge area, abutted by a tufted, toffee colored banquette and vintage inspired light fixtures on one side, and an upscale arcade area on the other. This space is the perfect place to unwind and revel.
