2018 Design Excellence Award
The Cottages of Lubbock clubhouse was designed to fit the student life at Texas Tech. The architectural vision was to create a palette of natural materials of corten, Texas limestone, and concrete and assemble them in a simple, vernacular way, as it were built generations ago. Covered porches at both ends of the building extend the gathering space out doors with furniture, fireplaces and shade… to provide comfort all year round.
You are welcomed with the Texas Tech university colors. Throughout the spaces we incorporated fun and inspiring graphic quotes. Large ceiling fans circulate the Texas air. There is a casual lounge space with modernized tufted sofas when you walk in, then a servery bar for entertaining and events. Modern soft leather chairs frame another soft seating gathering space. There are computer stations and work tables for individual studying. Group studying can be done in the red booth or private study rooms, each with smart boards.
