ArchitecturePLB have been appointed to develop the designs for the site masterplan and replacement clubhouse for Parkstone Yacht Club on Poole Harbour, up to planning. The project was won through competition, including design ideas and interview, against five other architects. The consultant team is made up of DBK, Hoare Lea and WSP.
The current Parkstone Yacht Club facilities are accommodated within a 1930’s building which has been altered and extended many times and has now reached the end of its useful life. The Club aspire to create the best clubhouse on the south coast; to support a wide range of water based sports for the existing membership, including dinghy and yacht fleets.
Parkstone Yacht Club’s Commodore, Dick Linford said “We are delighted to have appointed ArchitecturePLB as our architects and are looking forward to working with them. Our existing facilities have been extended many times over the last 80 years and they are no longer fit for purpose. We have a superb location, an active membership and full sailing programme. A new clubhouse will ensure that we continue to be one of the best clubs in the country for future generations of sailors.”
