The Steyn City Golf Clubhouse, with its environmentally friendly ‘green’ roof that blends into the topography, is a triumph of modern architecture, with classic touches such as Roman arches and acres of Italian marble.
Steyn City promises the consumer a lifestyle that is in tune with nature, and so when it came to the Steyn City Clubhouse, the owner gave the Architects the daunting challenge of hiding the building and reducing its scale. Previously an abandoned quarry that was left vacant, the brief was to have as little impact on the site as possible. The aim was to integrate the building with its surroundings and the indigenous landscape, as well as to create architecture that is responsive and sensitive while still being functional and sustainable. The goal was to explore the boundaries of what is currently perceived as clubhouse architecture and re-establish the benchmark.
