TOBIANO GOLF CLUBHOUSE

Kamloops, BC

 

The owners of this luxury golf destination envisioned architecture that would support an exhilarating, spectacular golfing experience. The clubhouse is significant in that it establishes the architectural language, ambitions and identity of the entire resort.

 

A heavy masonry wall integrates with the landscape, emerging from the earth while creating a counterpoint to the timber frame structure. The butterfly roof design lifts dynamically upwards and outwards towards the vast scenic landscapes.  Large window openings provide clear views merging the transition at the threshold between interior and exterior.

 

The clubhouse building houses multiple functions including public amenities; pro-shop, restaurant, exterior dining terrace, administrative office spaces, as well as cart storage and service facilities at the basement level.
