Country Club at La Cholla Clubhouse





Project Description

When MBK Senior Living purchased Country Club at La Cholla, an independent senior living residence in Oro Valley, AZ, their first goal was to increase marketability by transforming the clubhouse and common amenities. In particular, LRD Architects was charged with renovating the dining rooms with a focus on updating, expanding and diversifying the types of dining venues.

The first floor of the clubhouse had two formal dining rooms and a number of underutilized activity spaces. This project created three distinct dining experiences (formal, informal and Bistro). Using carefully planned modifications and finish upgrades, LRD enlarged and refurbished two formal dining rooms to allow for a bistro dining area and a more traditional dining room. The bistro includes a sandwich / bake shop and coffee bar.  We converted an existing conservatory to a wine bar with a two-sided fireplace. Smaller activity rooms have become more usable as combination game rooms and meeting spaces.

The second level of this community had an underutilized multipurpose room, which we converted to a large meeting room. Existing activity rooms have new life as an exercise room, theater, crafts room, chapel and hair salon. Restrooms and offices on both floors were also renovated.
