Forest Lake Tennis Club
The Forest Lake Club was faced with the task of updating their existing tennis clubhouse. Limited area on the site was available for the clubhouse between the existing tennis courts, which had been built at different grade levels. The club also needed to keep the tennis courts in use during construction. In answer to these constraints, and to work within a limited budget, the decision was made to design the new clubhouse on the foundation / footprint of the existing facility.
The design of the tennis club followed the context set by the existing golf buildings on the site, with white painted brick, arch openings, flat roof, and dark bronze aluminum windows frames. The new clubhouse has covered porches on both sides at courtside with stepping down outdoor terraces for viewing action on the lower courts. The clubhouse provides much needed gathering and relaxation spaces which also accommodate other club social activities.
