The Michael Hill Clubhouse by Patterson Associates
The brief articulated the client’s desire for a place that reinforced the game of golf, operating primarily as a “private box”, but with the capacity to transform into a gateway headquarters for large competitive events. New Zealanders’ identity is defined by landscape, and our cultural heritage is depicted in Maori mythology as a people borne of the land and the sky. This is the cultural view of the Science of geology and tectonic uplift. Hunkered into the earth with less than a third of its volume penetrating above the ground plane, The Michael Hill Clubhouse seeks to integrate and intensify the experience of golf’s primary relationship with the landscape.
