situated in an oasis bordered by the rapidly developing skyline of songdo, south korea, sits ‘jack nicklaus golf club of korea’ designed by american practice yazdani studio. the 50,000 square foot clubhouse offers tranquil views of the ocean and the nature preserve presenting itself as the centerpiece of the development.it derives its plan from asian architecture and feng shui leading visitors through a carefully choreographed series of visuals connections to the surrounding landscape.

 

the building has a 360 view of the exterior always connecting the guests to the outdoors. the delicate undulating roof creates a dynamic presence in the interior slowly allowing moments for the sun to pass through unfolding elements, breathing light into the space. the design strategically hides the large program and distributes the public zones across several discrete pavilions which are connected by a large plinth visually connecting it to the ground plane. the planning allows efficient services to be tucked away completely out of view.
