CLIENT: Franklin Hills Country Club | LOCATION: Metro-Detroit, MI | YEAR: 2005-2007
In 2005, Franklin Hills Country Club asked McIntosh Poris to facilitate the complete renovation of the existing men’s locker room and wet areas and to create a new men’s lounge and fitness center for the historic Albert Kahn-designed club.
The resulting design takes its cues from traditional English club design while also modernizing it by contrasting the heavy millwork with bright ceilings and walls and glowing lights. The locker room reflects a refined masculine identity, softened by the richly patterned carpet and luxurious granite countertops used throughout the space. The project was completed on time and under budget.
