Blessings Golf Clubhouse, Luxury Club House Design by Marlon Blackwell Architect

December 02, 2009 By: archinhome Category: Architecture

This is Blessings Golf Clubhouse in Johnson, Arkansas, one of luxury clubhouse was designed by Marlon Blackwell Architect. From Architect : A stand-alone structure set at the base of the hill, with its footprint minimally contacting the land, the Blessings Golf Clubhouse acts as a type of covered bridge. This bridging creates an entry portal that operates as a breezeway framing the eighteenth green, acts as a threshold to the golf course beyond, and is an event space for golf tournaments. Conceived as an animate form, the building receives the visitor beneath its cool and shaded underbelly, not unlike the clefts and caves found in the nearby hills. The Blessings Golf Clubhouse attempts to demonstrate that a conventional commercial building system can be transfigured into a contemporary design solution that recalls a traditional lineage, that of the traditions of the game of golf.

Fulbright Building by Marlon Blackweel Architect in Fayetteville, Arkansas

December 01, 2009 By: archinhome Category: Architecture

Designed by Marlon Blackwell Architect, Fulbright Building located in Fayetteville, Arkansas. From Architect : ” A renovation project intended to revitalize the civic quality of a historically and architecturally significant library building, while inserting a new program of professional offices. The Fulbright Building was built in 1962 to house the Fayetteville Public Library and remained the Library’s home until the Library moved to a new facility in 2004. Respecting the original design of the building the steel frame structure has remained relatively untouched. The upper floor of the building is lit from exterior glass windows and skylights cut into the existing roof. To make the lower floor more marketable, holes were cut in the upper floor slab below each of the skylights and staircases dropped into them. The 1990s addition, a double height space with a stair and handicap ramp, was converted into a large conference lounge area with an acoustical ‘shroud,’ clad in black zinc, suspended above. The sculptural figure of the ‘shroud’ acts as an art piece seen through the glass from the street. ”
