The clients’ requirements for the Olympic Club were to create an all day destination that would feel welcoming from breakfast through lunch and into dinner, while also accommodating individuals and groups to watch sports. The other requirement was to create a less “formal” lobby. The previous grill room was completely closed off from the entry and accessed through a separate hall. Not only was the restaurant completely re-designed, but was also opened up to the lobby, creating a much more prominent entry and invigorating the space with much added warmth.

The building itself is quite neoclassical, and so theArticle Three restaurant is designed to be contemporary and ‘clubby’ – while also being rooted in the club's history. Rich, classic & authentic materials such as black walnut, carrera marble, amber colored glass and bronze were used, creating a sporty, comfortable space for members of all ages to gather to watch sports or just socialize throughout the day and night. CCS was given access to the club’s photography archive, from which the “running track” was created from – historic and current images of the different sports played at the club, printed on aluminum panels that form a band around the perimeter of the dining room.  To further connect the past, present and future, various versions of the clubs bylaws were etched into a bronze mirror that is installed close to the ceiling surrounding the room.

At the opposite end of the lobby is 1860, a small bar that is adjacent to the club’s trophy room.  It is intimate and designed to blend more with the very traditional décor around it.  Its experience is that of a quiet living room with large comfortable furniture and fireplace where individuals or small groups can enjoy a cocktail and chat.
