The practice of BKA-Bahadir Kul Architects designed the Kayseri Ice Ring which is 9 kilometers away from the center of the city with the same name in the Kayseri Province of Turkey and it is accessed through transportation facilities such as minibus or the railway system, aiming to offer a workout facility for the citizens.

The project was designed to bring out the relation between ice and air, and the structure has two floors with the ice skating ring on the ground floor with a surface of 2000 square meters and a mezzanine floor. Aside from the skating ring there is a lounge area which hosts the public and social functions of the project and there is an audience seating for the ring, locker rooms and a kindergarten surrounded by glass surfaces.

The mezzanine hosts a café and it also offers an overview of the ring, while the roof extends to the entrance and forms a fringe covering a patio. There are colored glass gaps in the structure to emphasize its purpose of entertainment rather than being focused on competitive events.
