A New Era of Elegance

Raleigh, NC

In the heart of Raleigh, North Carolina, North Ridge Country Club stands as a testament to timeless elegance and social gathering. But time, while adding character, had also cast a shadow of the outdated on its once-pristine walls. Cline was commissioned to breathe new life into this beloved clubhouse.

Delivering a Vision

The challenge was as clear as it was daunting: transform the clubhouse into a beacon of contemporary luxury. The objective was to create a space not just updated in style, but also more inviting and functional for its members and guests. Cline’s vision was to meld the classic with the contemporary, to create a space that exudes timeless elegance while boasting modern amenities. Their approach was meticulous and holistic, touching every aspect of the interior and exterior to ensure a seamless blend of old-world charm and new-world sophistication.

Inviting Spaces Create a Spark

The lobby and vestibule, now adorned with tasteful art pieces, welcomes guests into a world of refined elegance. The spaces set the tone for the visitor’s experience, providing subtle spaces for spontaneous social interactions.

Social Gatherings Up Their Game

Here, tradition meets modern leisure. These lounges were redefined as spaces where stories and drinks are shared, with decor that pays homage to the club’s rich history while embracing contemporary comfort. The bunker lounge, once a mere waiting area, now invites relaxation with its plush seating and warm, inviting ambiance.
