Whistling Rock Golf Clubhouse - documentary

28.05.2014 - Publications

On our recent documentary we go back to Korea to visit Whistling Rock. With such a beautiful mountain landscape surrounding the golf course, it was only natural that this be our design inspiration for the clubhouse, start house and tea houses. The clubhouse reflects a careful balance between a luxurious golf clubhouse with environmental consciousness and site sensitivity.

Three tea houses grace the golf course trajectory offering a relaxing stop along the 27-hole golf-course. The tea houses are sculptural objects, and vary from one another, serving as visual icons within the landscape. Each tea house reacts to its own natural surroundings and from within, the landscape is given a unique frame. At night, these visual icons are seen from the main clubhouse and the course.

Golf clubhouse of 7,500 m2 with 27 holes golf course, restaurants, luxury apartment, pro shop, service areas, wine cellar, banquet rooms, bathing areas and multiple lobby areas.
