Zhaoqing, China

Zhaoqing Golf Club

A bold design statement is created when modern geometrical forms and colours work with traditional Chinese craftsmanship and materials.

The clubhouse building includes a grand reception lobby, restaurant, changing room facilities and administration offices. Designed by Ettore Sottsass, the architecture exhibits a modern design language which creates an interesting visual contrast with traditional Chinese characters also employed in the project. In order to enhance the architectural design theme, the interior design is also emphasized on forms and colours. Traditional Chinese craftsmanship and design elements, such as furniture, doorways and wall tiles create an interesting contrast with the modern design treatments applied throughout the project. Special light fittings are also designed for the project to echo the overall design theme.
