Olympic Arena Sports Centre

“Olympic Arena” is a harmonious fit into the busy and diverse life of a modern Minsk district. Located near one of the largest ice hockey arenas in Europe (Minsk Arena), the building became a part of an extensive cluster of sports facilities. The unique multipurpose sports complex can host training camps for amateur, professional and youth ice hockey teams, figure skating practices as well as sports-and-recreation and entertainment events. It became the country’s first single venue where you can play ice hockey, swim in the pool and work out in the gym. On the outside, brick walls of Olympic Arena with an inbuilt ventilated facade system are covered with dark gray ceramic granite, silver-colored profiled steel sheets and silver-colored anodized aluminum cassettes. The “broken shape” shell is assembled over sandwich panels, which may resemble an ice block. The facility features two ice rinks of different sizes. The small rink has similar size to those in North American arenas (National Hockey League) and its stands can accommodate 767 spectators. The big rink is built according to the International Ice Hockey Federation standards and can host 546 fans. A multipurpose sports hall can be used for basketball, volleyball, handball and futsal. Here, visitors can go to a modern gym (“X-Fit”, a well-known branch) as well as to a swimming pool made of stainless steel, the first of its kind in Belarus. In addition to the 25-meter pool with 4 lanes, the complex fetures a steam bath, Finnish sauna, shower hall and SPA recreation area. The developer has implemented a set of measures to make the facility accessible for people with limited mobility. Olympic Arena also features a branded cafe and children’s playroom. The arena began operating already in December 2019 – however, even before its official opening, sports life was in full swing here: young ice hockey players and figure skaters practiced on the rinks. Ice hockey team of the President of the Republic of Belarus also practiced here. Climate control system maintains a comfortable temperature for customers and visitors in different parts of the building at any time of the year. The building’s compact design (minimized ratio between its contour and total area) reduces the cost of space heating. Design time from 2015 to 2017 Implementation period from 2017 to 2019
