Stade du Roland Garros, home of one of tennis’ four grand slam tournaments, the French Open, has revealed animations of the two new stadia planned for the historic park grounds. The renovations will include a $400 million redesign of the event’s main stadium and a brand new greenhouse-inspired court, the first of its kind at a major tournament.

As shown in the video, the event’s main stadium, Court Philippe-Chatrier, will be rebuilt nearly from the ground up to provide foundation work for a new retractable roof system. Planned to be completed by 2020, it will make the French Open the final Grand Slam tournament to accommodate indoor play after the U.S. Open completed a $150 million dollar roof addition to its main stadium in 2016. The stadium renovations have been designed by ACD Girardet and Associates along with Daniel Vaniche and Associates.

The second video shows the construction of Roland Garros’ new Court des Serres, a 5,000 seat sunken garden stadium that will be surrounded by four greenhouses containing flora from four different continents. The facility, designed by architect Marc Mimram, will be connected to the park grounds via a new tree-lined allée that will allow fans to relax and stroll.

The third main component of the masterplan will be a new “Roland Garros Village.” Designed by  Atelier d’architecture Chaix & Morel and associates with ACD Girardet and associates, the village will include new public relations and receptions areas, as well as shops and eating options arranged around hanging gardens by landscape architects Team Corajoud.
