Using red concrete to build Palmares Clubhouse in the Algarve
April 12, 2021 - Algarve
Palmares Clubhouse is the landmark building of Palmares Ocean Living & Golf, a new resort in the Algarve backed by developer Kronos Homes.
The clubhouse is the first building on the resort to be completed. As the building where guests come together, it has been designed to feel both grand and welcoming. It achieved this with a form that is both monumental in scale, but also highly open.
Multifaceted columns support the thick concrete slabs that form the roof, overhanging a glazed facade that offers panoramic views of the coastline.
Rafael Aranda, one of the three co-founders of RCR Arquitectes mentioned that the clubhouse is the social part of the Palmares project and is one that brings together with all its intensity each of the concepts that we explained. The different spaces have their uniqueness and their landscape frameworks that, together with the interstitial outdoor spaces create a unique experience difficult to explain. It is the perfect place to pass the time.
The architects chose to give the building a red tone, to match the high levels of clay in the Portugal Algarve soil.
