zilker clubhouse Judy Birdsong | Spring 2010

This multi-purpose events center replaces a small, obsolete events building in Austin, Texas. It accommodates both large and small group functions with multi-purpose event spaces as well as conference rooms. It also includes appropriate administrative space and an auxiliary restaurant and bar space that functions independently of the event spaces. The intent of the design was to blur the boundaries of public and private, creating a building that serves the public after regular operating hours. The outdoor gathering spaces are joined by an external grand stair so that the spaces may always be accessed. Further, the Clubhouse takes advantage of a privileged view over the Austin skyline with generous views from all major gathering spaces. It maintains the inconspicuous presence enjoyed by the original Zilker Clubhouse as well due in part to its subterranean siting.
