Tom Hoch Selected By Southworth Development To Design Creighton Farms Clubhouse
Design-build firm to create centerpiece for Jack Nicklaus Signature Course, luxury community outside Washington D.C.
(OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla.) -- Tom Hoch -- a pioneer in revenue-based design and turn-key, design-build interior architecture solutions -- has been selected by Southworth Development to provide interior design services for the planned clubhouse at Creighton Farms in Aldie, VA.
To complement the luxury residential project's pastoral setting in the rolling hills and lush valleys of Loudon County's historic estate and hunting country, the Tom Hoch design team will develop a "refined yet relaxed" interior design that appeals to the aspirations of today's private club member. Featuring three-levels and over 32,000-square-feet, the interior space will echo the American Vernacular architectural motif.
"Tom Hoch has a proven track record of designing and building memorable spaces that are appropriate to the long-term visions of some of the finest properties in the U.S.," says Greg Sherwood, Vice President of Southworth Golf Management. "The firm employs an industry-leading mix of creative talent, industry expertise and state-of-the-art systems that enable it to complete turn-key projects of all scopes and scales."
"From the clubhouse to the golf course and beyond, Southworth Development is truly committed to providing the best possible member and guest experience," says Hoch. "We are honored to have been selected to work with Southworth to create the architectural centerpiece for Creighton Farms."
The main level of the clubhouse features "The Nicklaus Room" -- a celebration of Jack Nicklaus as an American sportsman -- as well as a pub, grille room with seating for up to 175 guests, full-service golf shop, library and billiards room. The lower level includes men's and women's locker rooms and lounges as well as a state-of-the-art fitness center. Ten club rooms occupy the upper level, providing overnight accommodations for members and guests alike.
Included in its design are custom cabinetry, counters and fixtures cast out of reclaimed and re-milled hardwood from local barns that are part of the original property. It is scheduled to open May 2011.
Removed from the clamor and congestion of the city, Creighton Farms is located 20 minutes west of Dulles International Airport outside Washington, D.C. Managed by Southworth Development, the luxury community is nestled in the sweeping Northern Virginia landscape, rich in history, tradition and promise. Custom-build homes sit alongside the 18-hole, par-72 Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course -- one of the premier courses on the Eastern Seaboard, recognized as one of the "Best New Courses in the World" by Travel + Leisure Golf in 2008.
Other recent U.S. and internationally-based Tom Hoch projects include: The Ritz-Carlton, Dove Mountain (Marana, Arizona); The Members' Golf Club at The Ritz-Carlton, Sarasota (Florida); Farm Links Golf Club (Alabama); Renaissance Golf Club (Massachusetts); TPC Valencia (California); Zavidovo Golf and Lake Resort (Russia); and Tulsa Country Club (Oklahoma); multiple projects with Troon Golf; Apes Hill Club (Barbados); and The Abaco Club (Bahamas).
