Sportime Tennis Center
six acres, including 15,000 SF clubhouse & 36,000 SF fieldhouse
The innovative design for a topflight tennis center combines a fieldhouse, clubhouse, and stadium into one contiguous building by merging long-span pre-engineered structure with conventional steel framing. The facility provides dramatic juxtaposition of spaces that allow visitors to view the courts from second floor lounges while providing for ample natural light to enter the sprawling structure.
A system of natural ventilation in the fieldhouse supplements the mechanical system to reduce energy use. The exterior is primarily blue and green metal cladding with a graphic retreatment on the fieldhouse derived from a stop-motion study of bouncing balls.
When completed in 2021, the multi-phase project will include thirty regulation courts with additional “Under-10” learning courts.
