Clubhouse in Braga, Portugal by Topos – Atelier de Arquitectura, Lda.

 
January 17th, 2012 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Topos – Atelier de Arquitectura, Lda.

On the site, a extremely inclined wall of schist, a staircase and a ruin overrun by vegetation… In the distance, an old farmhouse overlooking the valley of Lima River, between Mount Madalena and the town of Ponte de Lima. Around, a golf course under construction.

The ruin is for the “Clubhouse”…
Overcoming the stereotype image of “Clubhouse”, and convince with images of projects from FL Wright, R. Neutra, C. Scarpa … Demolish the ruin…
Taking advantage of the available material “in situ”, schist, to build large plans of stone…
Linking the plans by joints of concrete and iron…
Enriching the “bons coins” with refined design details…
Dilute the contact with the horizon trought the dynamic of the roofs…
Set diaphragms, transparencies, to fit a cork oak and an olive tree, and inside let the interior stretch out on the horizon…

    Hi,
    I am currently working with The National Golf Foundation and we are tracking golf courses under construction all around the world.
    As per your article, you mention about a golf course being under construction around The Clubhouse, Braga but on my initial research I could not find any course under construction but just a golf course named Ponte De Lima which opened in 1995.
    I would really appreciate if you could provide me with any details about the golf course.
    Thanking You.
