A championship golf course at Sanctuary Cove on Australia’s Gold Coast, has just unveiled an unlikely architectural addition to its grounds.
Designed by Cox Rayner Architects, the state-of-the-art clubhouse is set on the waterfront position looking out over one of the country’s finest courses and is far cry from the conventional look of its golf club counterparts.
With full height glass walls looking out over the landscape and a roof that opens up to offer uninterrupted views, the design makes the most of the picturesque setting by optimising the interaction between the interior and the exterior.
“The principle of the design was to create a building that becomes an extension of the surrounding environment and a place that highlights the course’s effortless beauty and unique attributes,” said Jayson Blight, a Brisbane based director with national firm Cox Rayner Architects.
The undulating roof form mimics the smooth undulations of the terrain, whilst the geometric angles neatly parallel the pristinely kept fairways and greens.
“It was of key importance that the clubhouse integrated and enhanced the site’s natural beauty,” said Blight.
Internally the clubhouse comprises two levels, with the upper floor containing lobby, registration/reception, and administration area.
The 19th hole features the Spike Bar, with a capacity for 150 guests, a 120-seat restaurant, terrace, restrooms and kitchen.
