Yacht Club

The proposed building consists of a large club room & bar on the first floor, dramatically positioned to look both out at the lake and over the club’s site, and reached by a sweeping stair. A ‘floodable’ ground floor contains changing & meeting rooms. The two floors are also linked by a timber external ramp, which doubles as a viewing platform for events and racking for dinghies. The building would be constructed using insulation-grade structural concrete, with an outer face of local stone. The proposed roof would be constructed as a unique timber frame, based on the structure of wooden boats’ hulls. A race office at the water’s edge is held within a timber trapezoid frame, inspired by large buoys and other nautical elements.
