History

INTRODUCTION

As demonstrated above, the original concept of Coweta Country club had included an event lawn behind the clubhouse. The original planned had included the construction of an aquatic center and tennis courts. However due to the lack of funds, this portion of the project was cancelled. In lue of the location of the event lawn, a small pool was constructed. This decision has altered the club in many ways. Design wise, there is no connection between the club and the pool. But the most important is that due to the lack of an event lawn, the club has struggled to take in profit from being able to host outdoor events such as wedding receptions and outdoor cooking events.

Project Type & Client Needs INTRODUCTION

Project Type: Hospitality Hospitality refers to the relationship process between a guest and a host. It also refers to the act or practice of being hospitable, that is, the reception and entertainment of guests, visitors, or strangers, with liberality and goodwill. It is a term that frequently refers to hospitality industry jobs such as hotels, restaurants, casinos, catering, resorts and clubs. Project Program/Client needs: • To develop and focus on its outdoor creation. • Incorporate several outdoor areas with a variety of functions • Weddings • Special Events: Birthday Parties, Wine Tastings & Small Outdoor Gatherings • Project must also include: • English Garden • Outdoor Kitchen & Dining • Separate Access Between Guests And Staff

8


Equipment Inventory Concept Statement & Potential Issues ANALYSIS INTRODUCTION

Concept Statement: The purpose of this project will be to transform the current area into a suitable and appropriate environment that will fulfill the requirements of both the client and the hospitality industry: • Design to accommodate a wide variety of functions, specifically those listed in the program. • Overall site should be functional and take carefully into consideration the circulation from both guest and service staff personnel stand point, but should also be as picturesque as possible to help create and enhance the mood and emotion of the guests. • Site should be capable of accommodating crowds ranging from 25 to 350 people. Potential Issues: Due to the complexity of the program, several issues may arise and additional research will have to be conducted in order to create an extremely successful design. This project will need to go into a more specific analysis other than soil, hydrology or vegetation; it will need to examine specific event requirements: • For example, what materials are needed for wedding receptions? How much room is needed for tables and chairs? What are the minimum acceptable distances between tables? Tents come different sizes, how will that affect the design? Another useful analysis to look into will be to study sun orientation and micro climate. • Lighting and water feature will be an issue. With the addition of outdoor lighting, the potential to host events at night will help increase profits. • Circulation is extremely important not only for the guest but also for staff so that they may smoothly and efficiently run an event without any hindrance to guests.

Slope Inventory ANALYSIS

Slope inventory indicates that the site has some several steep slopes. Placement of key features will have to be considered and major grading will probably be necessary. The best way to handle this site will be to terrace large areas of flat grades in order to fulfill the clients wishes. A benefit to terracing the site is this will reduce the cost of having to bring in additional soil.

EquipmentInventory Inventory Equipment ANALYSIS ANALYSIS

A study on the dimensions of equipment was necessary. It was crucial in determinig the dimensions of specific spaces, to make sure that certain areas would be capable of accommodating such structures.

Walking Distance ANALYSIS

This analysis focuses on server walking distance. The epicenter is the service “headquarters.” It is where staff will exit and enter building. This analysis will help in determing the location of certain areas, as stated by the clients’ need. Events that will be large in numbers, will require large amount of dishes and food to be served and so should be kept closer to epicenter. Not only will this facilitate with event coordination, but with overall service.

Relationship RelationshipDiagram Diagram ANALYSIS ANALYSIS

The importance of a relationship diagram is it helped to determine which areas were going to overlap and be connected. This analysis helped put order to the design. It created a tentative program/plan of how the design would be organized and layed out.

Concept 1

DESIGN PROCESS

Concept 1 emphasizes a very rectilinear design. It creates a connection between the building and the landscape.

22


Relationship Diagram ANALYSIS

Loose graphics that lead to the development of concept 1

Pros: 1. Strong central axis 2. Creates a connection between the building and the site 3. Designed lends well to the placement of key features and focal points Cons: 1. Existing pool is removed, and client wishes to maintain it 2. Limited circulation; could lead to hindrance of staff 3. Not handicap accessible

23


Concept 2

DESIGN PROCESS

Concept2 is an evolution of Concept1. The pros and cons were evaluated and helped develop this concept. This concept is more curvilinear in form, yet uses the strong central axis developed in Concept 1 to help create a connection between the site and the building. The existing pool is untouched, as requested by the client. The concept addresses the issues with circulation; the site is handicap accessible and staff friendly.

24


Relationship Diagram ANALYSIS

Loose graphics that lead to the development of concept 2

Pros: 1. Existing pool is kept 2. Handicap accessible 3. Staff friendly circulation. All areas accessible by multiple ways 4. Strong central axis 5. Secondary central axis Cons: 1. Areas are not defined 2. Client program not addressed

Concept 3 is an Illustrative Plan derived from previously developed concepts. This concept is more detailed and addresses the cons discovered in Concept 2. Concept 3 maintains the idea of a strong central and secondary axis. Focal points have been placed and spaces have been defined. Each space addresses a specific need and fulfills the demands of the client. Additional spaces have been created such as an overlook terrace to help enhance the site.

26


Previous Concepts that lead to the development of this Illustrative Plan

Radial form

Pros: 1. Existing pool is kept 2. Handicap accessible 3. Staff friendly circulation 4. Strong central axis with focal point 5. Secondary central axis with focal point 6. An attractive arrival courtyard 7. Guest and Staff have separated enrance access 8. Form creates a connection between site and building Cons: 1. Site somewhat large; hindrance to staff, especially during events 2. English Garden not developed 3. Design must be refined 4. Possible noise issue from road during wedding ceremony

27


Master Plan

FINAL DESIGN & SECTIONS

28


The final design has been refined taking the ideas and thoughts discovered throughout the Concept design process: 1. The overall form has been modified back to the curvilinear form discovered in Concept 2. 2. The wedding lawn has been relocated from its previous placement to its new one. The shift was done for several reasons. The idea of a campfire as a strong central axis feature was weak. By moving the altar to its current location ties in better with the concept. Weddings are a huge source of income, and therefore more emphasize should be designated. The wedding lawn is large enough to seat crowds of up to 350 people, as requested by client. 3. In lue of the existing wedding lawn, a wildflower meadow will be planted to add color and help stabilize soil conditions. The campfire has been relocated to the overlook terrace and becomes a focus on the secondary axis. 4. The English Garden is much more refined. 5. A terraced vineyard will be located behind the arrival courtyard to address grade issues, and will be a nice visual feature, as guests meander around towards the English garden. 6. Lush vegetation was added to the pool deck to help create a mood. 7. Key visual structures have been added throughout the site to give visual interest *Each area will be further addressed and examined later on during the focus area study.

Pool Deck

FOCUS AREA & SECTION ELEVATION

The pool deck has been modified from its existing conditions. The pool will remain the same; however the paving material has changed. Instead of a brick, the use of a grid pattern filled in with rectilinear bluestone and bordered by cobblestone. The Pool deck surface will often be used to host events, tables and seating can be set up throughout the space. Lush vegetation was used around the pool to help create an attractive luxurious environment.

Arrival Courtyard

FOCUS AREA & SECTION ELEVATION

34


A formal arrival space has been created to give the site significant meaning and impression. The curb-side drop off area will be surrounded by a vegetative covered arbor. Benches will be placed to allow seating, while people wait for valets to retrieve their cars. This arrival courtyard will not only serve a purpose for receiving guests, but will also be used for “send offs� during weddings.

Outdoor Social Gathering

FOCUS AREA & SECTION ELEVATION

36


The outdoor social gathering space is designed to accommodate crowds ranging from 1 to 15 people. The space is best suited to host small wine parties or cocktail hour. It is openly designed and takes advantage of the view towards the first tee box. The main focal point is a planter/table counter combo. The countertop is wide enough to hold wine bottles, glasses and even small platters of hors d’oeuvres.

Outdoor Kitchen

FOCUS AREA & SECTION ELEVATION

38


This space will play host to small parties. A full wet bar as well as an outdoor kitchen can be used during special events, whether to serve food or drinks. The space can also be utilized by the Club to host lunches and dinners outside. The Outdoor Kitchen space will have plenty of planting beds surrounding it, creating an intimate setting. There is also a large fountain to be used as both a visual and audible piece. The benefit of having multiple square tables will allow for more seating, and should large parties attend, tables can easily be combined to accommodate such crowds.

The space has multiple functions. Its primary function will be to host outdoor wedding ceremony. The space is large enough to seat crowds up to 350 people. The secondary function of this space can also be utilized to host wedding receptions. The maximum capacity for such usage is 100-125 people. The wedding lawn also has an attractive view of the wildflower meadow.

Overlook Terrace

FOCUS AREA & SECTION ELEVATION

42


The overlook terrace plays host to the campfire. It is a small private area that overlooks the wildflower meadow. It is accessible by handicap ramp leading from the wedding lawn. This small space can seat up to 10 people comfortably. Some key visual features included in this area is the use of large pots as focal points within the planted areas.

English Garden

FOCUS AREA & SECTION ELEVATION

44


The English Garden is a lush vegetative space that will be the center of attention for wedding pictures. A small meandering path leads you to the center of the space. The center space is depressed into the ground to give an effect of entrapment. The use of large white columns helps create an imposing vertical scale, as well as interesting visual focal points. The spacing between the columns and small trees help to limit the view as guests meander towards it. Within the center space, a wooden arbor can be found with a dequate seating beneath it. Two fountains were placed on either end to be used as Example of wooden arbor small focal points.

Master Plant List & Plant Palette The use of plants throughout the site can help create a pleasing environment. One of the biggest factors in selecting which plants to use, was to determine when will the site be most utilized. The site will be heavily utilized from mid spring to early autumn. This is the time that most outdoor functions, especially weddings, occur due to the enjoyable weather. So to take advantage of this, plants were carefully selected for their flowering season, flowering color, while a few for their pleasant fragrance. A plant palette has been created to aid the client gain a better visual understanding of the plant material to be used throughout the site.

Summary The Gardens at Coweta Country Club provide a unique insight into how landscapes and hospitality can mutually benefit each other. The site has been designed to not only be extremely functional from a hospitality stand point, but it also strives to create an environment that guests can admire and enjoy. The overall design fixed a crucial missing link: a connection between the clubhouse and its existing pool. It also created outdoor spaces, that will be used and create excitement among the clubs members. The main purpose of the project was to create an outdoor area that can accommodate a wide variety of special events, in the hopes that more events will take place such increasing profits. The unique aspect of this site is that hospitality was the driving factor throughout the design process such as understanding the relationship between designated spaces and how could they interact with each other. Circulation was closely examined in order to gain a better understanding of how guest and staff members relate. The hope is that this project can begin to place some focus on hospitality design and its importance for the both the landscape and hospitality industry.
