Even more spectacular timber structures at the Haesley Nine Bridges Golf Resort

After creating the eye-catching Club House, we built another six extraordinary structures for Haesley Nine Bridges Golf Club: a Learning Centre, a Recreation Centre, the Grand Hall underground foyer, a restaurant and the three Condo A apartment buildings. Our contract required us to plan all the timber construction work, produce the timber components and carry out the assembly process in South Korea. Shigeru Ban Architects came up with the idea and concept for all six additional structures at Haesley Nine Bridges Golf Resort.

You might call the view from the Grand Hall up to the lake with trees on the glass roof spectacular. From outside, 22 large potted plants decorate the construction. Sixteen stand in a 10 cm deep pool of water. In the underground hall, 22 Free Form timber columns support the glass roof’s bearing structure.

The Learning Centre and the Recreation Centre are sensationally set apart by their sweeping roof shapes. The oval or wavy timber roofs, featuring an overhanging and sloped design, are each the crowning components of a pure steel structure and a reinforced concrete structure. The three apartment buildings offer accommodation for guests staying overnight at Haesley Golf Club. Six Free Form double-curved dormers set the tone for the style of each of the apartment buildings. Technically connecting the timber construction to the glass facades proved to be a particularly challenging part of the detailed planning process.
