Pool Bar Addition at Bradenton Yacht Club

Pool Bar Addition at the Bradenton Yacht Club
This 1,300 S.F. Bar addition to the Bradenton Yacht Club is located adjacent to the existing Clubhouse, and between the existing swimming pool terrace and the north bank of the Manatee River. I designed it as an illuminated canopy supported on un-braced columns, an approach that maximizes the sense of openness to the outdoors. The consistency of the palette of materials and colors between the new Bar and the existing Club support the sense that it’s always been there.
