Architectural poems wandering the greens: Taifong Golf Club
Following the opening of The Siza House in 2014, The Chia Ching House was officially opened in October 2020. With a low-key, pure, neat, and clean spatial configuration, It weaves between the virtual and the physical volume. Responding to the unique and rich landscape of the golf course according to local conditions, it meets the demands of international sports events and the entertainment of honorable members.
Changing Scenery: Reason and Sensibility
One of the most difficult challenges in this design is the management of circulation in a state of continuous spatial expansion and the complexity of varies functional requirements. By the clever arrangement of various functions, the main spaces such as the reception hall, banquet plaza, super-car club, restaurant are vertically divided from service spaces such as parking, shower, kitchen, and maintenanc. This created several corridors where one can stop and wonder. The outdoor terrace for holding events provides VIP guests with a view to the Bagua Mountain. The structural columns are recessed, freely hollowing out non-structural wall in the long axis thus achieving material efficiency. And the hollowed out walls act as viewing apertures. The beautiful scenery of the land unfolds in a spatial layering akin to a Chinese garden. Upon entering the interior, the ceiling is deliberately lowered to create, creating a sense of contraction in the interior spaces and the expansion of the outdoor.
Flowing space: heavy and light
While the scattered spatial volumes have their own functions, there is an underlying structure and base facilities that tie the volumes together. There are 100 meters long continuous walls that express the flow of movement. In dimly lit spaces, skylight are deployed with a stroke of magic. The horizontal floor-to-ceiling windows are installed to greatly increase the opening area. The insulating glass guides the green scenery of the golf course from the outside to the inside. And the white painted exterior walls express both a sense of weight and lightness. These walls produce different rhythms of light and shadow over time, and the swaying shadow of the tree in the pool adds poetic space.
