Client: Town of Whitchurch-Stoufville
Size: 62,140 sq. ft.
- This 62,140 sq. ft. twin-pad ice arena will share a site with a Fire/EMS station, located near the centre of the Town of Whitchurch-Stoufville. The arena building will house two NHL size ice pads, with change rooms and upper level viewing for approximately 350 spectators per rink
- The building design is based on sustainable strategies; as an example, much of the waste energy from the ice surface refrigeration process will be recovered to heat other parts of the building. The arena concept is that of a simple box with a masonry base and an upper ‘belt’ of corrugated metal siding, punctured by a dynamic pattern of slot windows that will permit diffuse natural daylight into the rinks
- The ‘belt’ of siding is continuous at mechanical penthouse areas, where it becomes perforated; it is broken only at the entrance into the lobby, from which simultaneous views to both ice surfaces can be appreciated
