The architectural firm of Helmle, Huberty & Hudswell was responsible for the designs of two of Prospect Park's most impressive structures: the Boathouse and the Tennis House. The architects Frank J. Helmle (who first worked with the firm McKim, Mead & White) and Ulrich Huberty designed many notable buildings in Brooklyn during the early 1900s, including the Hotel Bossert in Brooklyn Heights, the Spanish Baroque St. Barbara’s Roman Catholic Church in Bushwick and the Greenpoint Savings Bank in Greenpoint, all of which have received landmark status. Their work included a range of architectural styles, influenced primarily by neo-classicism. The terra cotta Boathouse was built in 1905, with a design inspired by a Beaux Arts style 16th century Venetian library. The limestone Tennis House, built in 1910, is a colonnaded pavilion that overlooks the Long Meadow. See Boathouse history and Tennis House history for more information.
