In ad­di­tion to “re­cyc­ling” a neg­lected and oth­er­wise un­der-util­ized fa­cil­ity, GS Ar­chi­tec­ture’s en­vir­on­ment­ally-friendly design strategies in­tro­duc­ed day­light­ing in­to the formerly-win­dow­less club­house and in­cor­port­at­ed re­claimed wood and high-re­cycled-con­tent ma­ter­i­als in the design.

Scope of ser­vices in­cluded the two-phase renov­a­tion of the clin­ic and design of the sculp­tur­al rear en­trance can­opy and stair.
