Huntingdon Valley Country Club | Huntingdon Valley, Pennsylvania
Sited with views overlooking the course, the clubhouse designed by the prominent Philadelphia firm Tilden, Register, and Pepper in 1928 was in need of improved and expanded social spaces to help support and diversify the club’s membership base. VMA designed two additions to the clubhouse to provide new spaces for dining, relaxation, and more formal entertaining. The first, in circular form nestled against the original façade, opens onto a stone terrace, maximizing views of the surrounding valley. The interior contains the Toomey Dining Room and the adjacent and more casual Huntingdon Pub. The second addition expanded the facilities of the Flynn Lounge and provided a ladies’ lounge and locker area. With both additions widening the social capabilities of the club, this feeling of openness was further emphasized with VMA’s extensive use of large windows, rendering the clubhouse brighter, airier, and more transparent.
