The clubhouse form surrounds a central courtyard space flanked by wings housing an abundance of recreational amenity.

At the apex of the building’s arc form sits the concierge desk acting as the main axis point and welcome zone. By centralising the welcoming area, DKO has simplified the wayfinding experience and reduced corridors, thus improving both the overall flow of the building and maximising access to views and natural light.
DKO felt it important to maintain that open connection with the outside whilst still providing a sense of comfort and cosiness within the interior. Whilst the interior palette aided this, the spatial planning and flow were equally important to maintain this narrative. The curvature of the building around the central courtyard and the abundance of floor to ceiling glass provided a line of sight across and through the courtyard, back into the building.
A mature tree serves as a central anchor point, and surrounding native plantings blend the building into the site. The sunken gathering space with its tiered seating creates a canopied quarter for social interactions. Pedestrian links stretch from the communal greens directly to the front and rear of the Clubhouse with dual approaches ensuring easy access from the residential dwellings and car park. Internally, the material palette continues with the landscape reference with exposed brick and rafters linking to the exterior form. Elegant soft furnishings create a counterpoint to the bold surfaces, evoking a feeling of a luxury five-star hotel.
