A community has a natural innate need to come together socially. The clubhouse fullfils this need by providing a gathering place where it becomes an important and integral part of the community’s life at 16 Quartz. It is the centre for events and activities of the community and their families. There are a function room where the residents may have a wedding reception, holiday events or dinner events, a gymnasium, a swimming pool, a children’s pool, a children’s playground and a barbeque area.

The clubhouse takes centre stage within this community which is expressed physically by siting the building in a central position. By commanding this position, the clubhouse becomes the signature building that welcomes you to 16 Quartz.  As you turn left from jalan Melawati 7 into the long drive up the hill, you will see the road terminating its visual perspective at the clubhouse. 

The architectural style is modern and form simple in deference to nature and majesty of the hillside. The quartz hills of Klang Gate dominate the skyline, its silhouette rounded by time and weather where, the roughness of stone is tempered by the softness of water. Taking this cue from nature, the clubhouse takes an organic form as if a stone that has been carved then soften and rounded with running water. The water then collects into a swimming pool only to drizzle down its side which is articulated as a waterfall flowing over a precipice into the chasm below. The waterfall best showcases the exhilaration of height and the beauty of nature that greets the residents as they return home.
