Proposed for the idyllic setting of Kolchyno, Ukraine, the visionary Kolchyno Ice Center emerges as a multifaceted sporting haven, offering year-round athletic opportunities with its harmonious blend of ice and water elements. Designed by the creative mind of Katia Orli, this architectural marvel draws inspiration from the flu
Reminiscent of the iconic Heydar Aliyev Center in Azerbaijan, designed by the late Zaha Hadid, the Ice Center’s design exudes a sense of organic flow. Its façades, akin to multiple layers of rolling waves, impart a mesmerizing three-dimensional effect when observed head-on. The structure appears to mimic a range of majestic mountains or undulating sand dunes, evoking a profound sense of depth and fluidity through its meticulously sculpted gentle curves. A meandering river runs alongside the complex, casting a captivating inverted reflection, resembling a visual representation of sound waves and beautifully reinforcing the architect’s ‘wavy’ motif.
The facility extends an invitation to diverse sporting endeavors, offering an outdoor track and field, an Olympic-sized swimming pool within one wing of its interiors, and an ice rink in the other. The overarching goal is to create a year-round sports hub, enabling swimming and outdoor activities in the summer while sustaining ice skating and hockey year-round, particularly in the winter months. This perennial approach not only caters to sports enthusiasts but also ensures the economic viability of the center throughout the year. Located a mere hour’s drive away from the Slovakian and Hungarian borders, this architectural masterpiece promises to be a financial boon for the charming small town in Western Ukraine, adding a touch of grandeur to the surrounding landscape.
Nestled in the village of Kolchyno, just 10 kilometers from Mukachevo, the Ice Center enjoys strategic proximity to the Kyiv-Chop International Highway, facilitating seamless connectivity to the rest of the nation. As if nature herself conspired in its creation, the Viznytsia River gracefully flows in close proximity to the complex, further enhancing the serene and captivating ambiance of this exceptional sports venue.
