Phylosophy of Design

The M2 Phylosophy is simple.

You must combine the needs of the client,
the environment of what he does with the environment where the project is.
Assure the building functions for the use,
and forms to the well being of those living in the space.
You must combine all the Arts (Song, sculpture, painting, dance, lighting) with Engineering with,
Methods of Construction and Materials.

You must combine all these things with a dexterous mind, without and preconceived notions.


Ideas, Thoughts, Concepts, Colors, Textures, Climates, People all crash together to create a Sketch.

From very small to very grand ideas Sketches take napkins and doodles to a piece of Architecture that stands through time.


Once a Sketch begins to take shape.  Our team of Architects, Designers and Engineers add the programming and raw needs of a client to create Plans, Elevations, Interior and Exterior Environments.

Very practical applications of square footage and “FUNCTION” are met with the beginnings of “FORM”.  Light and Color and  Texture and Views all start to shape the function of the spaces being created.


All the factors we face in our environment shape the buildings or spaces we design.

The combination of all the “Arts” is the goal when taking functional elements and sculpting them into the spaces we live within.

Music, Painting, Sculpture, Engineering and the Dance of People all combine with our Sketches to create the Sculpture of spaces where we live and interact.


Architecture is responsible and must be a part of its environment.

sometimes that is “Loud and Vibrant” and sometime “Soft” and melting into its surroundings.

Architect |  Eric Milberger – “The building is an extension of the client and the community.  As you see our designs across the U.S., they show history.  This history define the time of when they were built but also the future.”


Architecture is the sum total of Knowledge.  It cannot just be a pretty picture for the moment.  Architecture lasts through time.

It must be responsible, sustainable and a part of our lives and the lives of future Generations.

The Milberger Architectural Group has been a part of the Tennessee Valley fabric since 1958.

How to Build an Ice Arena Project (Or Bust!)


Dial Ice Rink for Mesa, Arizona

MESA Arizona Dual Ice Arena Schematics Finished

Rink Magazine - Revisited

Published Spring 2003 - Revisited 2016
So, you’ve decided to build an Ice Rink.  All the excitement, success and glory stand in front of you.  There’s nothing in your way.  Thousands of families, children, excitement and fun will be seen everywhere.  The cash will roll in and you’ll smile every time you walk in the door.  It’s possible, but, not without a strong foundation. That foundation is built upon a few blocks:  Client, Time, Program, Expertise and Need.  You will find that these keys are all interrelated, relying of the success of the others.  You cannot build a facility $3 million over budget - you cannot overcharge your hourly rates nor can you operate for 32 hours a day. As an architect, I am surprised by how many forget or have a narrowed view of who the client is.  The client is kids, families, hockey skaters, public skaters, figure skaters, churches, schools, old, young, new and novice skaters – not just one client but many clients.  Any project which focuses on one client is far short of its potential.  Diversification is a key to any businesses success.  Design a facility which will serve all your potential clients. When you schedule your ice, you pay attention to daily, weekly and yearly needs.  You must do the same with the construction of your project.  You cannot have a successful first year if you open mid February.  It must be noted that your schedule is the most important factor affecting not only design, but your abilities to meet commitments.

Ice House Sends a New Group of Skaters to the 2018 Winder Olympics in Pyeonghang

We celebrate and Congratulate the newest group of skaters from the Ice House on their way to the 2018 Olympics.  The Ice House  is a 4 Sheet Ice Area design by Eric Milberger.  The Ice House celebrates this year, having sent 35 skaters to the Olympics.   read further......


HACKENSACK – In a spirited, fun-filled sendoff event at the Ice House, figure skaters bound for Pyeongchang performed for spectators one last time before competing in the Olympic Games next month.

The Hackensack ice rink is celebrating its 20th anniversary, introducing youngsters to figure skating and hockey, and training athletes to compete on the world stage. The four-rink complex has sent over 35 figure skaters to compete in the Olympic Games in the last two decades.

“We are so proud of our hardworking and dedicated coaches,” Craig Maurizi, director of the Ice House’s figure skating program, told the crowd. “We have eight members of our coaching staff who have competed in the Olympic Games. We also have nine coaches who coached at the Olympic Games.”

Winter Olympics: Who are the Ice House Olympians?

Winter Olympics: Ice House in Hackensack sending 11 skaters to Games in Pyeongchang

The 11 athletes competing in 2018 will represent five countries — Israel, Switzerland, Slovakia, Canada and Australia — in the ladies' singles, men's singles, pairs and ice dance competitions.

 “Tonight, we are showing why we’ve earned the title of Ice House of Champions,” said Maurizi.

At the event, called Ice Dreams 2018, the evening was more laid-back then the tense atmosphere of the Olympic ice rink. Skaters of all ages got their turn on the ice. Perfectly executed jumps – and even those that were a little wobbly – earned the cheers and applause of the audience.

For Geetha, 7, and Swathi Manchu, 4, of River Edge, it was their first time seeing figuring skating in person. The girls have signed up to start classes next month.

“I think it’s the funnest thing, especially on the East Coast,” said their father, Sreedhar Manchu.

The skaters were certainly having fun. With song choices like Cup of Life by Ricky Martin and Turn Down for What by Lil John/DJ Snake, it’s hard not to.

“I do want to try ice skating, it looks really cool,” said Betty Nagel of Teaneck. She came out to support her sister, Jordana. “Ice skating is all she talks about.”

The show was a bit of a homecoming for Natia Manizhashvili of Dumont, who moved to the U.S. from Georgia. She stopped skating after entering high school, where she joined track.

“I used to ice skate here, it feels good to be back,” said Manizhashvili, who started skating because she wanted to be the movies. “I’m excited to see the Olympians and want to meet them.”

Emily and Hanna Jacobson were there to support their classmate who was skating in the show. The girls watched figure skating on television before coming to Ice House to learn a little about the sport.

“I hope you do well!,” said Emily Jacobson.

Ted Baruli of Fair Lawn also came to see his sister, Helen, in the show. But his ambitions on the ice are a little different from hers.

“I think I will go with hockey if my mom says so,” said Baruli.
