Sid Lee goes all Canadian for Olympic House

Maple leaf-shaped stands? A room filled with Canadian landscapes? It's all set for PyeongChang 2018.

The Canadian Olympic Committee has officially unveiled its plans for the Canadian Olympic House at the upcoming PyeongChang Winter Olympic Games, with designs courtesy of Sid Lee Architecture.

Traditionally, the House serves as a gathering place for Team Canada, as well as their families and friends who are supporting them throughout their Olympic journeys. This year, however, all Canadian fans are welcome to experience the 12,000 square-foot house, which is located on the East Coast of South Korea near the Gangneug Olympic park.

The distinctly “Canadian” atmosphere includes maple leaf-shaped stands, images of Canadian landscapes and, of course, a patio for drinking plenty of Canadian beer.

Sid Lee Architecture is also in charge of the design of the Canadian Olympic Committee’s new offices in Toronto, while Sid Lee will manage the COC brand campaign for PyeongChang 2018, which kicks off Jan. 23.
