Corinthian Yacht Club
Pool & Tennis Building

Marblehead, Massachusetts
The project comprised the demolition of an existing structure and rebuilding in accordance with accessibility code requirements. The program contained men's and women's lockers and restrooms to serve the adjacent swimming pool and nearby tennis courts. A second floor was added for an additional meeting room space and for surveillance decks over the pool. The massing of the entrance tower replicates that of the main club building. The site is located at the mouth of Marblehead harbor opposite historic Fort Sewall, which provided gunnery protection for the USS Constitution during the War of 1812. The pool and tennis building is located adjacent to the main yacht club building which was built in the shingle style in the 1880's. Both buildings have commanding views of the harbor and environs. Located between the pool and tennis courts, the long wall-like configuration of the pool and tennis building acts as a wind buffer for the tennis courts.
