We are excited to share our competition entry for Dainton Park Golf Club. Dainton is a family-run business that currently comprises an 18-hole golf course, a restaurant and a small gym, in Ipplepen.
The brief was to design a new high end leisure facility, which would build upon the success of the current business, offer more flexibility spatially and explore new potential income streams.
Our proposal seeks to create a new entrance with a small ‘zen’ courtyard, to offer guests a sense of arrival. The lightweight glass structure, which links the old and the new, gives access to the restaurant, spa, and gym etc and reveals beautiful views of the adjoining golf course beyond. The building aesthetic is further enhanced in the evening when the delicacy of the building is revealed through the ‘lantern effect’ of the delicate patterns of a bespoke glazed screening.
