Norman Architecture

Another day trip to New Jersey to visit 2 of our country clubs that we are working on. This is another detail of Ridgewood Country Club in Ridgewood, New Jersey. The Clubhouse was originally designed by Clifford C. Wendehack, who like Tillinghast was one of the leading practitioners in his field during the 1920s. Wendehack chose a “Norman” building style because of his perception that the property was similar in appearance to that of northern France. Construction started in late August of 1928 and progressed smoothly until the clubhouse and course were opened in 1929. Faber-Castell Pitt Sanquine colored pens with Holbein and Daniel Smith watercolors in a Stillman and Birn Alpha sketchbook.
