Located less than 6 miles from the city center, the Kayseri Ice Rink is easily accessible via public transportation. Inside, the two-story building is split into a ground floor dominated by the ice rink and a mezzanine floor with cafe space. To complement the structure’s futuristic facade, white doughnut-shaped lights are suspended from the tall ceiling to illuminate the rink below.

Outside, the ice rink’s glazed entrance is framed by tree branch-like columns that also support the extended roof. The elevated platform outside the entrance is wide enough to serve as an outdoor patio where groups can gather. In addition to bringing in natural light, the large colorful glass windows add a sense of playfulness to the building and emphasize the Kayseri Ice Rink’s image as a place for entertainment rather than competitive sport.
