The Briar Club
Location: Houston, Texas
To meet increased membership needs, The Briar Club undertook a three-phase expansion. Located in the heart of the River Oaks area, The Briar Club is known for their swimming and tennis amenities. In Phase 1, they expanded their existing Fitness Building with additional lockers and a lounge, and added a new 25 meter lap pool. The locker rooms feature a shoeshine area, while the lounge has open views of the pool area with outdoor seating. The six-lane adult lap pool, situated in a quiet location away from the family pool in the center of the campus, replaced an existing tennis court; a subsequent phase of the project added three new tennis courts. The Phase 1 addition continued the materials of the existing Fitness Building while tying architectural elements with the three-story clubhouse constructed in Phase 3. The Briar Club continued in operation during all three phases of the project.
