The Ninth Middle Ridge | Cox Architecture

The Ninth was developed for Aura, a private operator of Independent Living design on an existing 18 hole Golf course. It occupies an underused site in the north–eastern corner of Middle Ridge Golf Club comprising 74 independent retirement living units apportioned across three buildings.
The proposal was structured around the creation of a ‘village green’ at the heart of the three buildings.
Pedestrian access is organised under sheltered links to promote social activity, community and connectedness between residents. The ‘village green’ looks out over the putting greens of the golf course and reciprocal relationship of views and backdrop are formed.
The stepped buildings use language of brick screening elements to direct views.
The scheme minimises the removal of existing vegetation and maximise views to the course and Silver Ridge beyond. The project creates a community identity within the site and has a symbiotic relationship with the Club offering shared services.
