Scandinavian Golf Club | Henning Larsen Architects

• March 17, 2011

Henning Larsen Architects has designed the Scandinavian Golf Club located in Farum, Denmark. With its location in the beautiful, hilly landscape of the previous training area of Farum military barracks, the Scandinavian Golf Club comprises an exclusive nature park and golf course of 2 x 18 holes.

The architectural vision has been to bridge the gap between the traditional American golf club and the functional architecture of Scandinavia. The golf club is a traditional wing house but is built in rustic materials with large cantilevers and oblique angles. The roof floats above the plateau as a sculptural element integrated in the hilly landscape, tree crowns and clouds of the sky.

The fine, sophisticated materials and exquisite craftsmanship provide the building with a high degree of exclusivity and ensure a unique balance between the architecture and the surrounding landscape.

The extensive use of the wood species Douglas, Norwegian slate, stone and tombac combined with the generous inflow of daylight through the large windows provide the building with a weighty yet light expression.

The project won the annual award of the Copenhagen Carpenters’ Guild in 2009.
