Olympic House | Lausanne, Switzerland

A minimal environmental footprint meets a maximum WOW factor 💯. This building hero is guaranteed to attract attention & set things in motion 🏃‍♀️

Olympic House (22.000 m2) in Lausanne, Switzerland is the perfect representation of ‘building a better world through sport’ (International Olympic Committee – IOC).

It’s the first to receive three of the most rigorous certifications: LEED v4 Platinum, SNBS Hochbau Platinum and Minergie P. Hard to top, right? Well, take a look at some more fun facts:

☑️ Through the green roof, terraces and fitness centre, the building & natural environment are rich with the opportunity for employees to participate in sport. 

☑️ U.S. Green Building Council says this building has the most points (93) of any LEED v4-certified new construction project to date. 

☑️ Low flow taps, toilets, and rainwater capture significantly reduce the use of water; while the solar panels located on the roof reduce electricity consumption from the grid.

☑️ Its interior can adapt to multiple work styles, now and in the future.
