Melbourne Park Western Precinct – Margaret Court Arena

Melbourne Park is the premiere tennis facility for Australia, the home of the Australian Open.

ASPECT Studios was in collaboration with NH Architecture + Populous to undertake the design of the public realm surrounding the new Margaret Court Arena enclosure.

Predominantly on an elevated podium level, this design integrates the masterplan vision of a world-leading facility set within a parkland setting with the requirement to create a flexible, stylised civic space suitable for the year-round use of patrons to this Sport and Entertainment precinct.
