The building is well integrated into the landscape. Thanks to construction techniques, special materials, camouflage and the typography, the building seems to belong to the site.

The project insists on integrating with the surroundings by subjecting the built to the topographic and climatic setting conditions and by using traditional materials along with constructive techniques. Some qualities of the environment have also been brought into the interior and vice versa.

    There is some exuberant exteriorization of structural form there.

  • Abi

    Remind me of Enric Miralles’s (EMBT) & Carme Pinos’s style of layout / form but not the materiality.

    • stabilo

      He did work a few years for Enric Miralles.

  • Ms Peacock

    Yes the snowy landscape looks stunning, however it is still a golf course so why have half the photos in winter?

  • Shawn

  • h.a.

    yes, clearly miralles geometry. However i see some sverre fehn sensitivity in the materiallity

    This project reminds me of some key features seen in the works of the modernist Alvar Aalto. The mood, atmosphere, and intensity of life are seen in this project by using habitual materials and constructive methods. A “total work of art” is coherently present by the building’s integration with the landscape, as well as naturalistic qualities seen in the interior.
