Briohn designed and constructed a 15,000 SF facility that houses the Lake Geneva Yacht Club and Geneva Lake Sailing School, both part of the Buddy Melges Sailing Center. This project included the demolition of the existing club and school. The graceful structure was designed to accentuate views of Lake Geneva, and includes a large 2-story deck, an indoor/outdoor bar with fully operable openings, a screened and curtained exterior dining area and a full foodservice kitchen and dining room. Due to the seasonal limitations of the sailing season in Wisconsin, the new facility was constructed between September and June to ensure the club and school were operational for the 2015 sailing season.
The LGYC is proud to have been awarded the honor of hosting the ILYA (Inland Lake Yachting Association) Championship for 2015, 2016 and 2017.
