Clubhouse by Asuncion Berenguer completes Pasig City residential scheme
Set in the centre of a 6.5 hectare townhouse development, the Ametta Place Clubhouse is an activity hub designed by Asuncion Berenguer, a place for residents to interact, enhancing community living. The fractal plan of the 750 sq m Clubhouse was created by the irregular fragmenting of geometric volumes from a rather large building footprint, allowing its mass to scale down, and directing its openings to flow out into exterior areas.
Facilities such as function rooms, a village office, children’s playground, deck, and pool area are delineated by two main axes: asymmetrical, crescent-shaped corridors. These wide, open hallways invite the exterior environment indoors as they blur the limits between interior and exterior areas. The assembly is then gathered within a structure of asymmetrically-cut planes in the form of walls.
From the inside, large perforations cut through extruded volumes and create openings in the building envelope. A sensitivity to the natural elements as one of its prime design considerations has resulted in an architecture that is bright, breathing, and manifold in its function. It allows various activities to be held at once, amidst the context of a tropical climate.
Different views of the Ametta Place community and its green setting are appreciated from the each area of the Clubhouse. Along with the 280 townhouses of Ametta Place also designed by Asuncion Berenguer Inc., the dynamic architecture of the clubhouse supports the modern lifestyle of its community.
