Spanish Peaks Mountain Club is a private ski and golf community in Big Sky, Montana. Having been an established club for decades, they have recently undergone renovations to keep their facilities up to date. Centre Sky Architecture is honored to help facilitate the renovation of the bar in the main lodge. The original bar had become too small for the club member’s needs, as the walk-up bar was limited in size and the surrounding seating was minimal. The solution was an expansion of the bar, enclosing the existing exterior deck that was rarely used. The new area created the opportunity to elongate the bar, almost tripling the length, and now has adequate depth for bar stools that members can enjoy. Much needed additional bar storage and circulation space for bartenders was also achieved. The color palette played off existing materials to keep the aesthetics of a rustic Mountain Montana bar, while also introducing lighter tones to brighten the space. New wood with a rough, reclaimed finish in light and medium grey tones was used as the main wall cladding material. Large glazing was installed on the new expansion to increase views of the Spanish Peaks Mountain range and hole 18 in the summer season. This also dramatically increased the natural light into the bar area. In conjunction with Tatom Interior Design, all the finishes and furnishings were updated to create a cohesive palette of new and old.
