Olympic House to officially open on Olympic Day

February 11, 2019

A sustainable investment

Olympic House is a privately funded investment in sustainability. The sustainability approach is threefold:

It has the strong ambition to meet the most demanding sustainability standards both locally and internationally. It has been designed as a sustainable building in terms of both construction and operations, with special efforts put into energy and water efficiency, waste reduction and landscape integration.

It aims to regroup all IOC staff in one location, resulting in cost savings and increased collaboration.

It also represents an investment by the IOC in the local economy and development. Eighty per cent of the construction of the building has been completed by local companies and contributed to the development of local competencies.

All IOC staff under one roof

Designed by Danish architecture firm 3XN, Olympic House will allow the IOC to bring together its staff – 500 employees currently spread across Lausanne in four locations – under one roof at a single site. Selected by the IOC in April 2014 after an international architecture competition, 3XN partnered with Swiss architects IttenBrechbühl to oversee the construction of the project.

From 23 June onwards, the IOC will benefit from two Olympic centres in Lausanne: Olympic House in Vidy to cater for its administration and offer a welcoming meeting place for all its stakeholders; and The Olympic Museum in Ouchy to host the general public.

Attachment to Lausanne, the Olympic Capital

With this new building, the IOC confirms its attachment to Lausanne, the Olympic Capital. Developed in close consultation with the local authorities, Olympic House will offer the region an emblematic architectural landmark and become an important element of the local Louis Bourget public park, which welcomes a diverse group of visitors every year.

A collaborative model

Olympic House is a unique example of innovative collaboration between many different stakeholders, including the IOC, the Worldwide Olympic Partners (Dow, Toyota and Panasonic), 3XN and IttenBrechbühl, sustainability certification bodies, local authorities, suppliers and academics.
