Custom builder Mark Mosolino has received a prestigious Home Building Industry (HOBI) Award from the Home Builders and Remodelers Association of Connecticut for his renovation of the Pound Ridge Golf Club clubhouse.
Mosolino took home the coveted “2014 Best Commercial Rehab Overall” award for his ability to maximize the structure’s utility and aesthetics. Considered an expert at creating vibrant, livable spaces in limited building footprints, Mosolino has received four HOBI Awards since 2010.
His work on the Pound Ridge clubhouse included the addition of permanent bathrooms, a full-service kitchen with new equipment, and men’s and women’s showers and small locker rooms. The breezeway between the building and temporary structure also was enclosed for additional comfort and privacy.
“We applaud Mark’s creativity and flexibility, and we’re elated that the Home Builders and Remodelers Association of Connecticut recognized the scope and nuance of his work,” adds Ken Wang, owner of Pound Ridge Golf Club. “The new-look clubhouse provides our guests more options including showering or refreshing here at the course, and grabbing a bite to eat before, during or after a round.”
Other notable enhancements included floor, ceiling and window frame molding, chair rails and other fixtures. Extra features and equipment were added to create both elegance and permanence. Guests now have the choice of relaxing in the refreshed interior or outdoors on one of Pound Ridge’s two alfresco seating and gathering areas.
“My team is honored to win an award in HOBI’s hyper-competitive commercial category,” says Mosolino, owner of Mosolino Development. “Pound Ridge Golf Club is a part of this community, and we embraced the opportunity.”
