Canyon Club at Crystal Cove
Perched high in the hills above the Pacific Ocean, the Canyon Club serves as clubhouse and swim club for the exclusive gated community of Crystal Cove. After designing some of the most sought-after homes in this community, Scheurer was selected by the master developer to design the Canyon Club to relate its architecture to the Santa Barbara-style residences. As a result, crafted details include arches at covered loggias, rustic wood beams, and varied terra cotta tile throughout. The main building forms a strong axis with the pool as its focus, and the primary arrival court is anchored at its center by a unique fountain. Adjacent to the arrival court, a substantial kitchen and community dining space accommodates large meetings and events. Beyond the pool, two outdoor pavilions frame views of the natural hillside and the ocean to create a place of relaxation and community in this exceptional coastal setting.
