The Fountaingrove Club is excited to be building the Club of the Future. We are working alongside industry experts, with constant input from our passionate membership, to design a gathering place that will serve Santa Rosa for generations to come.
ABOUT THE CLUBHOUSE, FROM BAR ARCHITECTS:
The Fountaingrove Club’s new clubhouse embraces the paradox of building a strong and vibrant community upon the devastation wrought by the Northern California fires of 2017. This will be where the dispersed nature of club amenities are brought together to foster interaction by all. This clubhouse encourages use throughout the day by being both a home and flexible work place for members and their guests. It understands that respecting tradition and community means embracing families and welcoming users of diverse interests.
Rooted in the natural beauty of the site, the new clubhouse celebrates natural materials, the craft of building with expressive, but minimal detailing and outdoor space conceived as seamless extensions of indoor activities. It embraces wine country ease with understated elegance. Every detail has a purpose, but the open, expansive plan provides unlimited flexibility in creating shared experiences and lasting memories.
The Fountaingrove Club’s new clubhouse will be a contemporary expression of timeless ideas — that members seek a clubhouse that embraces today’s lifestyle, provides beautiful spaces for communal assemblies, encourages small and intimate gatherings and creates a spirit of community for all who enter.
