Qinglong Gucuiyinxiu Clubhouse
Qinglong Clubhouse is the centre point of a new elegant residential development design by the Singaporean architects SCDA.
The clubhouse is the social heart, a place for residences to enjoy surrounded by a lush landscape. The plan is an L shape, its two sides facing onto the central water gardens. We see the clubhouse as a gateway, bridging between the architecture and the landscape.
Three key words define our design: Pure, Quiet & Calm
Pure – The interior develops a series of choreographed spaces on the journey through the clubhouse. These respond to the architecture, to its symmetry, and reinforce the ‘perceptual axis’.
Each space is defined as a pure moment, a place for the viewer to enjoy the landscape framed through the vessel of the architecture.
The design is distilled to express the pure fundamentals of architecture – light/shadow, space, materiality and transparency.
Calm – A balanced palette of stone and timber is employed to encourage a sense of calmness and serenity, reinforced through indirect lighting and refined detailing.
Quiet – As an antidote to the hectic lives we know lead, the clubhouse is a place of quiet retreat and reflection. It allows time and space for contemplation, to one to focus on themselves, freed from daily stresses, to relax in tranquil surroundings.
