Middle East National Tennis Stadium

Designed to give the most exceptional centre court views in the world, this 15,000 capacity tennis stadium unites an outstanding visitor experience with a highly sustainable design.

Its notable 12-sided form is created from a sequence of ring beams, which holds the seating bowl and gives superior viewing ranges for all spectators.

Subtle grade separations distinguish between public and service areas. These gradated levels allow unhindered access for patrons and staff, as well as secure entry for players, VIPs and media during operation.

Giving 29, 600 sq m in total, the project is underpinned by sustainable measures. Its remarkable roof includes a unique system of operable louvres that rotate and retract as required, providing highly tuned enclosure or shading for centre court. This amplifies the hours of operation using natural ventilation modes.

Natural ventilation and an efficient in-ground labyrinth, which cools air temperature, achieve pleasant conditions in the atrium cafes and restaurants.
