With over three kilometers of white sand beach, protected sand dunes, and a signature Gary Player golf course, this 6-star Golf Clubhouse & Boutique Hotel will be located in Saadiyat Beach, the premier district of Saadiyat Island. The proposed building orients to the sea, addressing all four of its surrounding sides. The ground floor is set approximately 5 meters above the surrounding golf course, giving the Clubhouse commanding views in all directions. With careful attention to the topography, landscape and gentle slopes ease the transition between the Clubhouse and the golf course, enhancing the landmark building.
Special thought went into the design of the indoor-outdoor experience: The notion of water with its reflective, soothing and cooling character became the guiding principle. Big expanding roof overhangs will create shaded areas while large cantilevered terraces will reveal expansive views of the golf course and the nearby ocean. The topography emphasizes choreographed views and vistas to and from the Golf course and to the shimmering waters of the Arabian Sea.
