A Clubhouse Hidden in Plain View


▼项目概览,project overview ©夏至

This recreational clubhouse building was a late planning addition to a large residential development in Chengdu.  Because open space was scarce when the clubhouse was added, we decided to tuck the building into a hillside facing the small creek, and pull the green terrain over the top as a blanket of rolling hills.  The move preserves both views and usable outdoor space for the surrounding luxury residences.  Approaching by car or by foot, the clubhouse is well hidden within the man-made hill.

On arrival, small, sculptural skylights emerge from the landscape along with the low-slung entrance canopy giving welcoming clues to the building within.  Along the creek, the multi-story façade forms a “cliff face” with terraces opening out from all the major interior spaces, and a geode-like multi-story glass lobby at the bend.

A Cave in the Bamboo Forest


Like walking in a bamboo forest, the entry experience provides rich spatial variety, with dramatic transitions from the elongated entry gallery with light filtering down from above, to the grand atrium lobby like a forest clearing, with views to the sky and the creek beyond.  All major functional rooms face the creek too.

The outdoor fitness pool doubles as a reflecting pool, connecting the building and creek with an infinity edge waterfall.  By blurring the boundaries between architecture, landscape and interiors, the clubhouse creates moments of surprise and discovery through a creative reinterpretation of local Chengdu culture and its legendary bamboo forests.
