Southbury Club

Oswego, IL

To give community residents a destination where they can ‘vacation at home,’ the Southbury club has the appearance of an east coast shingle style vacation home. A creative site plan and landscape plan, also designed by BSB, focuses views on the club and amenities while shielding views of an adjacent water retention basin and industrial park.

Inside, the plan creates the feel of a large manor home with a curved staircase inside the octagonal tower providing a dramatic sense of arrival. By concealing the second level within the roof and utilizing dormers to bring sunlight to the upper rooms, the building has a smaller footprint to reinforce the comfortable, inviting vacation theme.
