with its location in the hilly landscape of the previous training area of farum military barracks, denmark the scandinavian golf club comprises an exclusive nature park and golf course of 2 x 18 holes.

the architectural vision of henning larsen architects was to bridge the gap between the traditional american golf club and the functional architecture of scandinavia. the golf club is a traditional wing house but is built in rustic materials with large cantilevers and oblique angles. the roof floats above the plateau as a sculptural element integrated in the hilly landscape, tree crowns and clouds of the sky.

the fine materials and craftsmanship ensure a balance between the architecture and the surrounding landscape. the extensive use of the wood species douglas, norwegian slate, stone and tombac combined with the generous inflow of daylight through the large windows provide the building with a weighty yet light expression.

  • Remarkable how Henning Larsen has managed to encompass diffrent styles of Scandinavian building tradition. It is situated in Farum, Denmark, but could fit in anywhere i Scandinavia.
