Oppenheim Architecture, Ayla Golf Clubhouse in Aqaba (Jordan)

Drawing inspiration from the dunes of the surrounding desert and the tents of the Bedouins, this sinuous concrete construction is the Ayla Golf Clubhouse, a work of the firm of Chad Oppenheim. It is the heart of Ayla Oasis, a 44-square-kilometer development that includes apartments, commercial spaces, and a hotel, located in Áqaba, a Jordanian port city facing the Red Sea.

To fuse the building with the desert landscape, an orange pigment was added to the concrete. Perforated screens of CorTen steel filter the light like the lattices of the traditional mashrabiya.
