The Club at Melville

Located on 13 acres of land with 261 residences, lush gardens, wooded areas, a pond, and gazebo, The Club at Melville is a premier lifestyle community in Long Island established for people 55 and over (or better, as they say). These zestful surroundings are perfect for their vibrant residents who crave luxury-style resort living. A highlight is a 4,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art Clubhouse that includes a heated pool, sundeck, fitness center, lounge, and great room with fireplace. “Our design directive was to infuse vitality into the community,” said Benjamin Gordon, Vice President of Development at Continental Pinewood Development Partners. “Every element had to offer a fresh, upscale modern take on traditional or familiar designs.”

Kim Loren, Lighting Designer for the project, selected standard in-line Hudson Valley Lighting pendants, Kyle and Alpine, and wall sconce, Aberdeen, to complement the interiors of the Clubhouse. Lighting layouts and specifications were completed during the design development of the project; Loren further coordinated her selections with the interior designer’s efforts toward the end of the construction phase. Hudson Valley’s fixtures perfectly speak to the Clubhouse’s aesthetic by offering traditional designs infused with current trends.

“As a lighting designer for more than 20 years, I have specified Littman Brands’ products on many projects,” said Loren. “Hudson Valley offers lighting fixtures that are very tailored and can transcend from traditional to modern spaces. The sharp lines and tailored shades provide a handsome backdrop for the light and enhance the overall aesthetic of the Clubhouse spaces. Hudson Valley is a smart choice when it comes to design, cost, and lead time.”
