Taking natural design elements to the next level, Argentina’s Morini Arquitectos has designed a new golf course in Estancia Pueblo la Paz bringing together the area’s rich cultural history and a light-infused contemporary finish with contemporary architecture.

Finding inspiration in an unlikely source, the architecture firm found itself unexpectedly fascinated by large piles of logs — accumulated at the end of the 18-hole golf course — which had been present for over 100 years and which had, as a result, acted as “silent witnesses” to beyond a century of history. The finished project uses over 20,000 logs of various species, all taken from the site, which was manually stripped of their bark to form part of the building’s glowing glass facade.
