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. Particular emphasise was placed on blending the building into the surrounding parkland, without any disturbance to surrounding preservation order trees during its construction.
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.
Cityline were selected by the LABC Building Control Officer as finalists for the following three awards in the London Building Excellence Awards 2015, held at the Guild Hall.
