The owner wants a clubhouse that can be used as place to gather with family. Clubhouse area at the land in front of a complex that consisting of four lands that owned by the assignor. The existence of one-story clubhouse is designed for long-term, that today serves as the sport facility and family gathering. But in the future, this building can be converted to a retirement home for their parents.
Because of the clubhouse for together, then the spaces inside are designed large enough in which to have the flexibility, so that in the future is easier to change the function. For example, the space that originally used for the gym, then if the owner has retired, it will be the master bedroom. Clubhouse building design is quite simple. It is quite interesting from this project is how to bring a common architecture that designed in Jakarta, then applied to Kuching, Malaysia. Clubhouse building creates a new atmosphere in this area, because there are no projects around this building with similar architectural design.
The functions of the space that will be presented includes: sport area together, gathering area, large dining room, swimming pool, gym, outdoor play area, barbeque area, and bedroom for guest. Pools for adult and children, placed in front of the building which also featured by stretch of grass garden that quite extensive. Besides the pool, at the rear and one side of the clubhouse, there is a reflecting pond.
The owner wants the clubhouse can present atmosphere like in Bali. This was realized with outdoor shower and bathroom with semi outdoor atmosphere. Boundary between inner and outer space was designed very thin that also created to bring atmosphere outside into inside. The owner also wants the area in front of the swimming pool that finished with wood. Because it is on the outside and adjacent to the swimming pool, the architect proposes to use ironwood or marine resin. The owner is a local contractor and will seek the wood that has the same power as recommended by the architect.
Most of the walls are planted with vines to get cool spaces, considering this building is used from noon to night. In addition, the vines can present more comfortable atmosphere. If there is any artificial cooling, it will only use the ceiling fan. Owner asked for air circulation and light can be progressing well. If the day is not too hot, artificial cooling can be turned off, and the doors at the rear can be opened.
The green architecture concept is applied to the use of the lattice of wood. By using the lattice, will create optimal cross ventilation. The use of roof that raised from the wall to create space that endorses energy efficient building concept, because of the large flow of wind at the location. In the front, there is guest bedroom that equipped with shower and public toilet. When the guests swim, they can use the public toilet. In addition, there is also a large pantry that also becomes the dining room together.
