Tennis clubhouse with seats on roof

Dutch firm MVRDV   has put forward a plan for a tennis clubhouse with seating on the roof, to be built in Amsterdam.

Its proposal  features stepped bleacher-style seating on the roof that rises to a height of seven metres on one side and cascades down to ground level on the other.

“This ‘Couch’ can seat up to 200 spectators,” the architects said, describing the curving benches from which people will be able to watch the action taking place across the 10 courts.
