design sets benchmark for collegiate hockey arenas
ROSSETTI designed a “cathedral for hockey,” weaving the University of Notre Dame’s strong brand and Gothic architectural vernacular into the state-of-the-art facility. The arena features collegiate and community ice surfaces connected by a wide concourse that allows views between the two. The team and player program features a strength and conditioning room, a shooting galley, and hydrotherapy. Themed fan amenities include suites, club seats, retail and an Irish pub. The home for the Fighting Irish Hockey Program offers a platform to enhance recruiting and training. Opening the arena for public use provides an additional revenue source. The Compton Family Ice Arena is certified LEED Silver.
