MANGROVE CLUBHOUSE
SHENZEN CHINA

PRC Competition Winning Scheme based on a landscaped Wetlands as a focal point for the high density development.

The Mangrove Coast Clubhouse has an open air courtyard and pond at its centre. The slightly concave windows overlooking the courtyard allow natural day lighting to reach normally inaccessible parts of the building. The external windows are topped with overhangs so that the hot mid-afternoon sun cannot penetrate the building and the perimeter is surrounded by flora to provide shade. The building also employs a green roof.
