About the Project


We worked to completely transform the club restaurant, bar, private dinning room / wine cellar, and outdoor areas to create an incredible new experience for club members and their guests. The result is an environment and refreshed amenity that has served as an excellent magnet for new business flocking to the club. (Completed in 2016)


  • Obviously, dusk is a special moment in the desert. We wanted to play off of the gradient of vibrant earth tones that the sun shimmers across the landscape, something that the club has a great view of. Orange and burnt umber contrast with yellows and muted tones to keep the color palette appropriate for Scottsdale, but in a way that’s designed to mimic the gorgeous scenery here at Ancala.






  • The bar area in particular has a strikinng detail floating over the heads of patrons: a thatched collection of wood and metal beams that help define the space.



  • Exterior dining areas are interrupted with fire pits and lounge chairs, just the perfect place to enjoy sunsets and tee-offs.







  • The private dining room and wine cellar built into the back of the floorplan used to be a supply closet. You’ll never know, and don’t you dare tell!

Please sir, may I see some more?
