Strong currents of cultural influence are celebrated in the Dreamtown Club. The Art of Chinese Tea and the tradition of encouraging social interaction by building strong bonds over a meal are reinforced in the Clubhouse. In its first incarnation the building will function as a real estate sales office, a place for prospective buyers to get a glimmer of what the new neighborhood will be like. After a period of time the building will transform into a neighborhood meeting place, functioning primarily as a teahouse and restaurant.
In order to screen unwanted views and focus on desired vistas, Line and Space completed detailed site analysis and view angle studies. As a result of these studies, a view corridor was developed through the building. Extending wall planes, a natural hillside, a large reflecting pool and a sheltering roof plane, seen through floor to ceiling glass, reinforce a view of a distant wooded canyon and connect the building to earth and sky.
The lower level features several private dining rooms. The varying layouts and views from each provide diners a different experience from each room. Private gardens unite with sloping hillsides and merge the building with landscape and reinforce a strong connection to nature. The theme of flowing water reinforces wayfinding and defines circulation.
