SEJONG CLUBHOUSE



LOCATION: SEJONG CITY, SOUTH KOREA

DATE: 2008

SIZE: 9000 SM

PROGRAM: GOLF COURSE CLUBHOUSE, TEA HOUSE, SPORT COMPLEX



In contrast to the natural/artificial layout of the golf courses and the strict shapes of the buildings the platforms are abstract greens, which cater to different functions, such as parking-above and below ground, circulation and viewing terraces. The elements of water-reflecting, grass with sky-lights, asphalt with trees and buildings with glass lanterns reinforce the place on which they stand and their relationship with each other. They cascade down the hill and form a strong landscape connection with the program and the user.

The form of the buildings follows their articulate intention, folding roof planes for the active buildings establishing a relationship with the distant hills and city view. The roof planes dip and rise according

to the inner program and hug the site in an articulated yet gentle manner. Both the Clubhouse and the driving range have a strong metal roof shape on the outside and a warm wooden underside and supports. Clear glass and large overhangs allow views all over

the site and shade the interior. As an expression of soaring the clubhouse restaurant cantilevers over a reflecting pool. This creates a special place for contemplation, views, photos and weddings.

The Sports Complex in contrast has a large uninterrupted shape, which is mitigated by the green roof and glass lanterns penetrating the roof field. This structure encompasses many elements and a complex program under one simple roof.
