The design concept of the Isernia Golf Club building started with the idea of converting an existing wooden structure, built to cover the golf shooting stations, into a Clubhouse pavilion. The original structure of that shelter was static and got lost with generous size of the golf course and the beautiful open-ended views facing the surrounding valleys.


Therefore, the intention was to enhance the presence of the building by adding iconic value to the imperfections of its shaped geometry. Looking like an open-air theater and declaring its artificiality to the natural environment, the building aims to have an ephemeral aspect, as a ‘compensation’ of its own presence in a uncontaminated site.

The building is composed of a wooden screen enveloping the existing structure along the perimeter, fragmenting natural light, and peeling off on the back side to form the main entrance. The access to the golf course is marked by a ‘fragment of construction’, a stone wall along which a heavy steel plate slides across big metal gears.
