About the Project

The revival of the Midcentury look is big right now, but can look a little forced when applied to a property that isn’t authentically, well, midcentury. Brookhaven Country Club in Dallas, Texas, is a thoroughbred family-friendly club founded in 1957, offering a Byron Nelson and Press Maxwell-designed 18-hole golf course, tennis and racquetball courts, a full fitness facility, three gigantic swimming pools, and more.

Working with Brookhaven in the past, we know how important their history is to them. We wanted to honor this facilities and its members– many of whom are multi-generational members through family ties –when we were tapped to renovate the poolside grill and upstairs bar. The result is a truly exceptional remodeling exercise that modernizes the spaces and brightens the atmosphere, all without seeming too trendy or contemporary. It’s just right.

  • The downstairs grill area, which looks out onto the pool area and putting greens, is adorned in walnut and tweed furnishings, framed by thin metallic surfaces that add a punch of contrast without being too heavy. Note the zinc sublimation prints showing old pictures of the club hanging at the entrance to the grill.

  • Seating downstairs is comprised of a variety of spaces. A long banquette at the back of the space gives the ultimate flexibility to seat small- and large-sized parties, while private booths and four-top tables allow for a more intimate dining experience.

  • A new chef’s buffet table wraps around the back wall, adorned with a custom wall print outlining the 18 holes of the golf course, designed by Byron Nelson and Press Maxwell in 1957.

  • The upstairs bar area continues the theme of seating flexibility and variety. Two community tables, two contiguous banquette tables, two bars (one facing the actual bar, and one facing the poolside windows), and a smattering of four-top tables spread throughout.
  • Members love this space because, again, they have multiple ways to use it. Dinner with friends and family, game watch parties, working away from the office, or grabbing a pint or two after a round of golf … it’s up to them!

  • Seating on the far end of the room enjoy a generously-sized TV wall. Sports, news, entertainment – it’s all here.

  • “Burbon, neat.”
