Brooklawn’s vision for the project was to “honor the past while adapting to the lifestyles of the present” and KG+D worked tirelessly with the Club’s Building Committee to ensure that every detail reflected that idea.
The primary goals of the project were to: improve circulation flow and daylighting within the event rooms, increase the useability of the exterior patio space, and improve the arrival sequence and accessibility, all while creating an updated, yet timeless atmosphere.
