The Nine Bridges Country Club-Clubhouse is a 16,000-squaremeter facility that serves a golf course.  
It has an underground level and three floors above grade. There is a main building, VIP lobby building, and a structure with private suites.
The atrium and the upper portion of the main building include timber columns and a glass curtain wall, while the base is made of stone (random rubble masonry typical of Korea). 
The timber area includes the reception zone, a member’s lounge, and a party room. 
The stone podium houses locker rooms, bathrooms, and service areas.  
The roof over the main building measures 36 x 72 meters. 
The unusual tree-like timber columns in the atrium reach to a height of three stories. The partial-timber structure was used to conform to Korean regulations that do not allow timber buildings to exceed 6.000 square meters in size.  
The first floor of the atrium has 4.5-meter-wide glass shutters that open fully.
