PHX Architecture

“Over the last few years, I have gotten to know Erik and his firm well, first through satisfied clients in the high-end residential, clubhouse and hospitality business who recommended him to our companies. Subsequently, he has performed outstanding services for our companies that included work on plans for an innovative village center for a 10,000acre property. Finally, we have heard back from satisfied clients of his firm, who called to thank us for referring Erik to them.”

The Lyle Anderson Company, Inc.

“In choosing planning, design and architectural consultants, three criteria head our list of considerations. First, we look for people who are easy and enjoyable to work with. Erik and his team meet that standard. Second we want people with immense talent, including creative talent, but who listen to the client and apply that talent to the client’s needs and personality, while at the same time proposing alternatives if they think they see a better path. Erik and his firm have been outstanding in that regard. They participate with enthusiasm, and with appreciation and understanding of the high quality we desire. Third, we look for value, and our experience has been that Erik and his firm clearly meet that test.”


PHX Architecture is one of the nation’s leading award-winning private golf clubhouse architecture firms. Headquartered in Scottsdale, AZ, with a satellite office in Beverly Hills, CA, PHX Architecture has a team of architects to lead your club from master planning through remodeling or new construction.

C2 Limited Design Associates

“To say we were pleased with C2’s design, process, involvement, and “hand-holding” might be the understatement of the year. They were amazing every step of the way. Their ability to take limited direction, interpret and define “the feel” we were looking for, and articulate this vision in an incredible rendering, and then final result, made us know, as we had heard, they were the best.

The membership thought they were getting a really nice “club” bar and grill, but what they got was the nicest bar and grill, club or otherwise, that they will ever walk in. The response has been off-the-charts and this new room will truly change the way the membership uses the Westchester Country Club.

I cannot speak highly enough about working with C2 Limited. Craig, Christina, and the team were a treat to work with and they exceeded our loftiest expectations. I know I am not the only one at Westchester who is taking a good look around the club to see what other spaces can be vastly improved by C2’s incredible designs.”

“Since reopening post-renovation, the Semloh Room is now the clubhouse’s most popular dining and social venue. Usage and enjoyment of the new space by members and their guests is consistently steady Tuesday through Sunday. In addition to dining covers, the club has seen an uptick in members “dropping in for a drink” before and after dinner, even when not dining at the club.

Creating outdoor congregational spaces, especially when you can capture the shoulder seasons, is a winning solution. Our members will benefit and enjoy our new space well beyond the golf season. C2 Limited Design has delivered comfort and sophistication, yet again.”


C2 Limited Design Associates is an awardwinning private club design practice led by founding partners and co-creative directors Craig J. Smith and Christina H. Romann. Smith & Romann have created a signature niche in the worlds of luxury golf resort and exclusive private club design with their bespoke approach to design uniquely tailored to each client and their story.

C2 Limited Design Associates prides themselves on bringing a highly creative and collaborative approach to every stage of conceptual planning, design and project implementation. In doing so they ensure a holistic contextual integration of an assignment’s architectural backdrop, interior décor, and landscape design while successfully managing their client’s programmatic, budgetary and timeline expectations.

“As clubhouse designers, we always enjoy sharing our substantive new approaches to clubhouse enhancements that improve the overall member experience, create a new or enhanced revenue opportunity, and streamline operational efficiencies.”

"The recruiting process at RCS Hospitality Group was efficient and tailored to meet the needs of the current labor market. Brian and his team were professional, knowledgeable, and quick to respond. The end results of the search were fantastic, and I wouldn’t hesitate to utilize their services again in the future!"

“As a golf course operator with 9 golf courses in the same market, we knew we needed consistent training. We ramp up quickly and our training would fall behind. We started RCSU and had a very successful launch. We were able to provide consistent training and messaging across all of our courses with success. The best part was going to each course and seeing the training and hearing the employees talk about what they learned. ”

Building Your Dreams on our Legacy of Innovation

We’re inviting you to a new kind of outdoor experience, where you are at one with nature and have control over the elements. Our full range of products are sophisticated and strong — and we will custom-engineer them to make the most of your space. We’re building on our legacy of innovation by merging precision manufacturing, artful design and the best of home automation technology. Every detail has been thoughtfully considered, from streamlined exteriors with no visible screws to double-wall louvres and hidden gutter systems.

Soak up the sun, dial in just the right amount of shade, and stay dry when the rain comes. When you’re ready to step outside, we will be with you every step of the way — from dreaming up your new space together to standing by you with an industry-leading warranty and service program.

Stand beside one of our pergolas, carports or pool covers, and see pleasing proportions and clean lines that enhance the landscape around you. Watch the wind buffet tree branches nearby while your patio cover stands firm. Feel the first drop of rain and watch the louvres above close themselves mere seconds later. You can’t see it with the naked eye, but decades of experience in engineering and technology make these experiences possible.


We trace our history to 1996, when Charles Chapus created Abrisud. He earned around 20 patents for his suite of products and made his company the European leader in pool covers by 2005. Chapus continued to design new products and new methods for crafting them, earning more patents with O Plus Piscene in France, which had four retail locations and built more than 500 pools.

Chapus formed Azenco Groupe France in 2011 before expanding to Spain in 2016, along with Switzerland and the United States in 2017. In 2019, Azenco achieved milestones on both sides of the Atlantic: partnering with Akena Group, the number one sunroom manufacturer in Europe, becoming the leading maker of pool enclosures in the European market, and opening its first U.S. manufacturing facility in Miami, Florida.

Today, we use our 25 years of experience and 30 patents to create products that make life better outdoors for our customers and their guests. But we aren’t resting on the achievements in the past — every day, we’re applying new insights and the latest technology to continue driving our work forward. Let’s create the outdoor life of your dreams together.
