Racquet Club

Luis Machuca Architects as Architects

The Inacua racquet club is the result of the expansion of the sports offer of the sports complex Inacua in the west of the city of Malaga. The seven tennis courts and the fifteen paddle need a clubhouse to serve them and make the main entrance to the venue.


For this purpose, a building is constructed that contains the changing rooms, the store, the schools, the management of the slopes and the restaurant, and whose connections are made by external routes due to the benefits of the climate of the Costa del Sol.


In this way the architecture in its limits becomes a series of porches, where in addition, wait, talk or rest are sheltered from the sun and enjoying the sea breeze.


It is precisely in these exterior / interior points where the architecture becomes richer.


The building is arranged as a large gable roof and L-shaped, whose main entrance is a large porch hollow by Marilyn Monroe Street and completely facing the Inacua Pools building. In this space, the restaurant, the store and the reception of the club are covered with independent access, the latter being preceded by a semi-covered patio that serves as a waiting area for visitors and players.


Towards the interior, the building opens L-shaped porticoed to a large patio, thus locating on one side the changing rooms and on the other the restaurant that can occupy the space with tables and chairs, turning the patio into the social center of all installation.
