Location: Birch Run, Michigan
Size: 109,000 S.F.
The NHL Skate at Birch Run was the first NHL endorsed community ice rink in the world. The NHL size rink seats 800 while the Olympic rink seats 400. The mezzanine contains 5 sub-dividable multi-purpose rooms and a large NHL “Fantasy Zone” arcade. The exterior evokes images of hockey with a “puck” canopy set within a “goalpost” support, center line and blue line markings as well as puck accent features. The interior lobby space continues this theme with a high-build epoxy flooring with rink graphics to emulate an ice rink itself. (The building is no longer utilized as a an ice rink)
