Over 90 percent of the Ananti Club in the South Korean city of Seoul is below ground. Ken Sungjin Min of SKM Architects wanted to preserve the beauty of the surrounding wooded landscape and to avoid the damage caused to the view by the 8,200 square meter building complex.
Except for the entrance hall and a panoramic tower, therefore, most of the facilities (restaurant, locker rooms, sauna, etc) are arranged on two underground levels. Everything visible from the facility matches the natural geographic formations of the vicinity, such as ponds, valleys, plains and cliffs. The materials were selected appropriately to the characteristics and functions of the individual building components. The use of visible concrete permitted the formation of elegant curves that vanish into the ground with the building. The roof of the main entry has a titanium-zinc panel facade that highlights the modern high-tech ambiance of the facility.
The panoramic tower reigns over everything and is visible from every point on the clubs grounds and the neighbouring 27-hole golf course. The building, with its futuristic shape and facade, has generous windows for views into the distance over the virgin pine forest to the mountains visible in the distance. The geometric building is clad with Reynobond® aluminium composite panels. The coating, with its Chameleon Autumn Wind colour, has a specific effect: The facade appears with different colour nuances depending on the angle of the light. This gives it a natural, living appearance, making the building a part of its environment.
The stylish rooms are split over three floors, providing a framework for different occasions from stylish banquets to cocktail receptions in the lounge area, to a pleasant sit-in at the fireplace. The clubhouse also highlights the view of the landscape and is a place to relax. In addition to the golfing opportunities, visitors can take part in a variety of sports and leisure activities, whether sauna, tennis, swimming, ice skating, hiking or cross-country skiing.
The combination of sports, relaxation and nature makes it easy to relax. Especially the architecture of the club facility makes any stay a special memory.
