1. BATON ROUGE COUNTRY CLUB- Baton Rouge, Louisiana
In 2012, Chambers worked with the club to propose other enhancements to improve the member experience. The previous Versailles Room (a large formal dining and banquet space) was converted into the new Terrace Room – an adult casual dining space with a large, centrally located circular bar in place of what was once a central dance floor.
The interior design contains a space featuring a variety of dining, bar and lounge seating, as well as large floor-to-ceiling windows with picturesque golf course views. The outdoor terrace was also expanded, covered, and equipped with large TVs, fans, and an outdoor kitchen. A gallery was also created between the Terrace Room and new kitchen, a space that boasts wine cabinet displays and permanent.

In 2011, the Club hired Chambers to assist in the development of a hotel interior design focused on all aspects of the club – membership, governance, management, dining, and social aspects, golf, and recreational activities.

3. CAPE FEAR COUNTRY CLUB- Wilmington, North Carolina
In 2011, Cape Fear Country Club engaged Chambers to develop a long-term Facilities Master Plan for the hotel interior design. Chambers facilitated the planning process to develop a phased program. Phase One consisted of rebalancing of clubhouse dining spaces (renovations were completed Spring 2014), while Phase Two including developing a Family Activity Center (FAC), which held its grand opening in Spring 2016.
The FAC’s interior dining spaces respond to the traditions of the Club and its setting in the coastal plain and Tidewater region while creating a contemporary coastal aesthetic that is both sophisticated and functional for members of all ages. Employing mostly neutrals with accents of azure blue, turquoise, and grassy greens, interior colors are reminiscent of the natural areas surrounding the Club to create a clean-lined, calming environment through hotel interior design, as well as the thoughtful application of color, materiality, art, and furnishings.
4. DUQUESNE CLUB- Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
As the premier private city club in Pittsburgh, the prestigious Duquesne Club has provided its members and guests with exclusive recreational, social and business experiences; superior service; and exceptional personal attention since 1873.
Hired in 2014, Chambers developed hotel interior design solutions based on information gathered from a Membership Survey. The renovations reimagined the Club’s traditional spaces to create comfortable, intimate areas for informal gatherings.
Such renovations include transforming the Ricketson Room, which now features a refined bar/lounge area that has brought an active social life back to the club. Once a large living room that remained vacant most days, the Ricketson Room now offers flexibility and versatility for various club functions. The layout and décor were carefully selected to bring a lighter, fresher feel to space, enabling it to transform for varying needs.

Conceptual plans for the outdoor terrace overlooking Tai Tam Bay—complete with a bar and infinity-edge plunge pool—was the first phase of the overall Master Plan to be implemented.
6. NORTH OAKS GOLF CLUB- Minneapolis, Minnesota
In 2016, North Oaks Golf Club embarked on a remodeling program that would equip their dining facilities with the space necessary to accommodate their growing membership. Chambers focused on creating spaces that matched the energy of the membership and enhanced the overall flow of the Club. Improvements focused on reimagining the dining facility, updating the bar area, creating communal outdoor spaces, as well as exterior maintenance improvements including new siding, stone, and a new roof.
What was once a long and dark entry foyer now boasts a bright and welcoming reception and maître d’ area, adding to North Oaks neighborly appeal. To breathe life back into an unused space, the Living Room was transformed into a Wine Room complete with cocktail seating and a stone fireplace. Additionally, the Wine Room opens up to the newly expanded bar area, further optimizing the flow and flexibility between spaces.

The intent was to complement the traditional look and feel of ULCC while enhancing its functionality for today’s modern member. Large accent chairs and sofas were strategically placed to offer members a dual-purpose space for casual conversation or a cozy corner to read the morning paper. Additionally, refined light fixtures, fine art, and bold décor blend beautifully together in ULCC’s reimagined first-floor space to add a touch of modern sophistication to an already polished club.
9. CHARLOTTE CITY CLUB- Charlotte, North Carolina
The hotel interior design was upgraded with custom milled cherry woods, Hawaiian granite, Axminster wool carpeting, and elegant furniture, fabrics, and accessories. The new Grill serves as the lively centerpiece of the Club, offering dining, a bar, and a library.
