Bonnet Creek Golf Clubhouse
Lake Buena Vista, Florida

Unlike most Disney architecture, our buildings at Walt Disney World do not conform to the notion of theming. The “theme” of the Bonnet Creek Golf Clubhouse, as well as that of the Contemporary Resort Convention Center, is the architecture itself-the memory of forms and space, reinforced by color and graphics, establishing a primary sense of presence.
Sited on the knoll of a golf course overlooking a lake, the Clubhouse building is an object with a composite identity. Its silhouette, visible from a distance across the greens, is experienced more immediately through the vehicular arrival sequence.
The integrated use of color intensifies the multiple images and forms of a simple internal program: golf shop, bar and grill, banquet-multipurpose room, kitchen, lockers, administrative offices, maintenance facilities, golf-cart storage, and staff facilities. The goal was to transform the traditional golf clubhouse image into a site-responsive, architecturally defined object-collage in the landscape.
