clubhouse at arpora

Type hospitality architecture + interior
Status under construction

The studio was brought on by a leading developer in north goa initially to provide interior design consultancy services on a clubhouse building for a premium villa scheme in arpora. through a convincing presentation backed by ideas expressed as diagrams, we managed to get ourselves appointed as architects. located right by baga creek, the building will house a squash court, gym, indoor games, mini theatre, spa, co-working space, a restaurant and a pool. To retain the view and connection with the river, one half of the building is lifted up off the ground on skewed stilts, with the restaurant located under it. Local context comes through materiality such as the bamboo screens on the facade and the laterite stone, but also through gestures such as the ‘bell tower’ that houses the lift shaft. Other references are maritime – the raised part of the building resembling a ship’s hull, the use of shipping containers in the mandatory setback zone – while yet others are historical with the use of the Portuguese blue tile. The fragmented parts of the building are held together by bridges, internal courtyards and a series of connected water bodies.
