The National Tennis Centre at Melbourne Park comprises of a High Performance Tennis Centre consisting of 21 indoor & outdoor tennis courts, a public plaza, 1000 space public bus & carpark, alterations to the existing Hisense Arena and a series of new pedestrian links, including walkways, bridges and ramps, to seamlessly connect the new facilities to the existing sports & entertainment venues located in the greater Melbourne & Olympic Parks precinct. The High Performance Tennis Centre is designed to be an elite, world class training centre for tennis. As a building it is intended to be represented as a transparent pavilion in a parkland setting and is sited along the northern site boundary to minimise its bulk when viewed from Olympic Boulevard allowing AAMI Park & Hisense Arena to be the dominant buildings fronting Olympic Boulevard. The buildings form incorporates a gentle aerofoil which distinguishes the dynamic roof form with extreme cantilevered overhangs to the south, east & west. To the north, the roof profile wraps down to form the northern facade to enclose the two levels of ancillary spaces that provide a main entry and all other associated facilities to service the tennis court users.
