The clean silhouette of this two-story clubhouse blends beautifully with the rolling, wooded hills of the Mystic Creek Golf Club, recognized as one of Arkansas’ premier courses. Inspired by the historic rural architecture of E. Fay Jones, the timber frame is infilled with glazing to allow daylight and views of nature within the space. Designers organized the clubhouse’s program and structural elements using an evenly spaced grid of local southern yellow pine glulam beams and wood roof decking. The expressive roof forms broad overhangs along the perimeter to provide outdoor shaded walkways and seating areas while still allowing unobstructed views. The design team also selected timber to reduce the building’s embodied energy; in addition to wood’s inherent carbon benefits, the exposed timber structure minimizes the need for additional finishes.
