The Couch

The design for a clubhouse for the Tennis Club IJburg in the east of Amsterdam is an attempt to minimise the use of valuable playing space by combining the clubhouse typology, a long low strip opened up to views of the courts on one side and the waters of the IJMeer on the other, with that of a sports tribune or grandstand, perfectly angled for centre-court viewing. The roof of the club folds up to form this informal spectator platform, which can seat up to 200 people.
