If creativity be the food of design, think on,
Give me excess of it,
That I may grave more.

The Nine Bridges Country Club-Clubhouse is a 16,000-square meter facility that serves a golf course. While the entire structure is breathtaking, it is the atrium and the upper portion of the building with its timber tree-like columns, glass curtain wall and hexagon grid shell roof that quickens our heartbeat.

The building’s wooden hexagon grid shell, an ecological and naturally ventilated concept of a hexagon pattern, is based an a Korean traditional summertime pillow (called” bamboo wife”). The most innovative feature is the hexagon grid shell roof. The fire-resistant roof and columns are exposed in the interior spaces. Source
