A tribute to hockey

This Laval sports and cultural complex by Lemay is an ode to ice sports and features a nordic landscape concept. With an accent on unity and formal simplicity, the architecture is iconic, evocative and timeless.

Place Bell is a rallying point for the community, with facilities that will promote ice sports and host cultural events. The huge multifunctional complex includes: a 10,000-seat arena, a 2,500-seat Olympic ice rink, a 500-seat community skating rink, a gymnasium, concession stands, a sports medicine centre, retail and office spaces, two interior parking lots and a large public plaza.
