When we learned with David Kubik that we could, even under relatively complicated conditions, take part in the contest for the golf club in Kacov, we left everything else to swim. Moreover, as we soon found out, the countryside where the clubhouse would be located is simply gorgeous. The long, slow arm of the Sazava river captures the beautiful scenery of the landscape, rising above the surface of the river to a height of almost 90 metres. Nearby is the picturesque town of Kácov with its unique castle, whose central hall, with a sort of continuous skylight, gives it the impression of an Italian building.
Virtually bewitched by the spell of the area, we did not have to wait long for the main concept of the construction: suddenly, there was a giant golfer who put his shoe in soft clay almost at the top of the peak where the investors jabbed their finger into the plan.
Along the perimeter of the giant footprints were 100 x 50 metres of muddy clay mounds, into which we cut a segment and placed the clubhouse here. On the outside, we set up a gigantic terrace with panoramic views not only of the golf course but of the whole countryside; It would be a sin to deny the view of the river, the magical atmosphere of the little town with the castle and the surrounding countryside.
In order to get the orientation and the correct height position of the building towards the playing area and the rest of the landscape, we rotated the whole model, and, at the same time, we realised that when the sun shines, everyone gets dazzled so the shielding system became a priority.
However, as we wanted a long-term sustainable house, we devised a large, sturdy blade shape like that of a windmill; timber below and a titanium-coated top.
由于投资者希望有一个 "坚固 "的房子，有大量的石头，我们以古希腊的风格创造了一个大型花岗岩块和柱子的空间。而由于我们致力于几个世纪的优良传统，我们希望让俱乐部成为自然的一部分，所以我们使用了木材和玻璃。朝向停车场的北墙是石头，中间是花岗岩，并定义了一个高架的入口区域，这里的吊顶系统是由实木制成的。
Since investors wished for a "solid" house with lots of stone, we created a material and spatial study of large granite blocks and columns in the style of old Greece. And since we are committed to centuries of good tradition, we wanted to make the clubhouse a part of nature, so we used wood and glass. The north wall towards the car park is stone with granite in the middle, which looks like it goes in and defines an elevated entrance area where the suspended ceiling system is made of solid wood.
The first floor contains basic facililties that similar buildings have: a dining room, a bar, a gathering area, VIP areas. Other facilities, ie shop, administration, kitchen, warehouses and social buildings are located at the northern facade. The restaurant, foyer, multifunctional room and VIP zone connect with the terrace.
