Edinburgh’s Hermitage golf course to receive new club house
October 9 2015submitted plans for a new club house and mountain bike trails at The Hermitage Scotland, an existing public golf course in Edinburgh.
The £3.4m project will see removal of an existing temporary clubhouse and its replacement with a low slung timber structure and split level roof to permit passive ventilation and natural light.
This will house a café, seminar room, gallery and offices with changing rooms, workshops and stores located in a basement sub-level.
In their design statement the architects said: “The building is conceived as a continuation of the existing landscape. A plateau is formed which establishes the principle floor level. From this glulam column ‘trees’ support a stepped ‘green’ roof. The internal soffit of the roof is detailed with timber slats for aesthetic and acoustic qualities - similar to that of a canopy of a tree.”
Chosen materials include light precast concrete eaves details, double glazed timber framed glass curtain walling & windows, treated larch timber cladding and ex¬posed glulam beams with steel connection plates.
