A unique hexagon-shaped structure in the community of Gunbarrel, Colorado, that has served for more than fifty years as the clubhouse for the private Boulder Country Club, may soon be seeing renovations.
Located at 7350 Clubhouse Road, the Boulder County Club was designed by famed modernist architect Hobart Wagener. The 29,200 square foot structure is distinguished by its interlocking wings, and houses lobby, dining, and office space.
Now a plan has been announced to add around 2,000 square feet to the building.
But to get that work approved for the structure, the Boulder County Planning Commission has determined that the owners of the country club must agree to pursue a formal landmark status through the county’s Historic Preservation Advisory Board.
That status, according to county officials, will help to protect the building, which was opened in 1965, from any future exterior alterations.
According to reports, the owners of the building have agreed to seek the historic designation. Once that process is completed, members of the Boulder County Commission are expected to give a final stamp of approval to the project.
Actual work on the building will most likely begin later this fall, with a general completion date set for next summer.
