Text description provided by the architects. Inacua Racquet Club is following the enlargement of the sporting Inacua sports complex in the west of the city of Malaga. Seven tennis courts and fifteen paddle courts need a house club with a lot off services where we find the main entrance.
For this purpose this building contains locker rooms, shop, tennis schools, tennis courts management and the restaurant, and whose connections are made outdoor thanks to the mild climate of the Costa del Sol.
Thus the architecture within its boundaries becomes a series of porches, where waiting, chat or rest is done sheltered from the sun and enjoying the sea breeze.
It is in these outer / inner points are where the architecture becomes richer.
The building is arranged as a gable roof and L-shaped, whose main entrance is a large hollow by c / Marilyn Monroe and fully facing to the Inacua Pools building. Shelter in such space with separated access are the restaurant, the shop and the reception of the club, the latter preceded by a partially covered courtyard that serves waiting for visitors and players.
Towards the interior, the building is opened to a large courtyard, ranking well on the one side the locker room and on the other the restaurant, turning the courtyard into the social center of the whole installation.
