Victor B. Ortiz Architecture is rooted in its mission of crafting sustainable designs around the world. One of the latest plans from the studio envisions Brazil’s largest private timber tennis court.
To be located in the city of Cuiabá in Mato Grosso, Brazil, the GS Tennis Court establishes its footing with a focus on innovative structure, efficient material, contemporary engineering and sustainable design. Featuring a dome construction, the most striking aspect of the tennis court’s design is its radial structure, which is inspired by sea urchins. As such, the design is able to foster curves lines and features with straight timber beams. The entire space is set to span 2,5000 square meters with panoramic details.
The GS Tennis Court is also set to include additional amenities like a full spa area, a kitchen, changing rooms and indoor landscaping. From the timer to the flora of the landscaping, the project aims to incorporate local elements. Once complete, the tennis court will be able to hold 500 spectators.
