Dutch firm MVRDV unveiled images of a tennis clubhouse with seating on the roof, which will begin construction later this month in Amsterdam. MVRDV's proposal for the clubhouse included stepped bleacher-style seating on the roof that rises to a height of seven metres on one side, and cascades down to ground level on the other.

"The Couch" can seat up to 200 spectators, according to the architects, in regards to the curving benches from where people will be able to watch games taking place across the 10 courts.

The project was developed with fellow Dutch architects Studio Bouwkunde and structural engineers ABT. It is scheduled for completion by summer 2014.
