Client: London Borough of Hackney
Architect: STUDIO E ARCHITECTS LTD – David Lloyd Jones

What started off as being a small disused corner of the park was transformed and constructed to form a fully functional contemporary tennis club house for all members of the public to enjoy.

The cladding with Iroko battens from a sustainable source complimented the design to soften its impact on the surrounding landscape. The club now functions as a meeting place for tennis enthusiast, a function room for the public and a new tennis club house for the lawn Tennis association with full disabled access, lift, WC and showering facilities.
