Banquet Hall Entry


2009 Commercial Honorable Mention Award -AIA Central New York

Musket Ridge Golf Club
Banquet Hall
Frederick, Maryland

The Owner’s challenged the design team to develop an addition that would compliment the existing clubhouse, while establishing a presence sufficient for weddings and regional conferences, and an identity separate from the golfing tradition.  The addition needed to be substantial and compositionally self sufficient, yet clearly secondary to the clubhouse itself.

The siting of the banquet hall responds to the knobby ridgeline bending around the west face of the clubhouse and to the concept of an entry axis distinct from the existing building.  Both buildings can come together and cluster around the arrival and parking at the top of the hill, while developing individual and differing spaces at the course to the west.
