The concept is one of tennis in an English terraced garden landscape. Tennis centres are often open and their character is dominated by the ubiquitous chain link fencing that is required. However here, hedging and terracing are used to break down the external court areas into smaller garden-like spaces, each with a unique character.
Six covered courts with associated changing and social facilities are housed on the central terrace beneath a graceful timber canopy. Views of the external courts and garden terraces are available from all interior spaces. By using a system of sliding screen walls, the indoor courts can be opened up and link to the outdoor landscape during the summer months.
