Text description provided by the architects.

Just as a game of soccer requires strategic passes, powerful striking, and eleven members that move and breathe as one body, successful architecture also requires a coalescence of key ingredients. In designing the Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors FC Clubhouse, Suh Architects incorporated efficient circulation, distinctive communal spaces, outdoor courtyards, and customized architectural and graphic details.

These elements were arranged strategically to allow for natural sunlight, fresh air, and panoramic views to penetrate all areas. Despite the building’s linear expression, the layout features a ‘one-stop’ system yielding minimized distances and easily accessible facilities.The 8,000㎡ building plan is programmatically driven by the training, rehabilitation, and recreational needs of its resident players and staff.

The complex features two outdoor soccer fields, one indoor soccer field, fitness centre and state-of-the-art-aquatic rehabilitation rooms, main and reserved players’ locker rooms, recreational areas, and resident rooms, and both public and more private outdoor courtyard-garden areas. The overall building’s mass and orientation seek to embrace the site’s expansive views of rolling mountains and natural reservoir without dominating its surroundings.

Its leaning form, and stone and metal-clad exterior symbolize the speed and force of the game of soccer as well as the vision of a company willing to build a winning team alongside its own future identity, with both dynamism and longevity in mind..
