The Pacific Club’s pavilion, located on the edge of a great lawn on one end and paddle tennis courts below, had been the “poor child” of activity spaces, used for yoga and aerobics classes and as an occasional function space. Originally designed by renowned island architect Vladimir Ossipoff, we were asked to come up with a whole new concept for the area. The club wanted to turn the pavilion into an informal spot on weekday evenings for casual food and drinks. The menu would be family friendly allowing the adults to have cocktails and conversation while children played on the lawn before a light dinner. The space could then be converted to other uses during the day.
The club’s style had always been elegantly timeless with comfort being a top priority. We used a woven floor covering that could withstand the elements, lightweight stackable chairs with woven detailing and lightweight teak tables. Everything was softened with large ceramic planters and tropical plants. Newly named Mangos for the trees located outside, it has become one of the most popular spots in the club.
