Residences at Utah Olympic Park

Since the 2002 Olympics, the Utah Olympic Legacy Foundation has aimed to provide additional support services to up-and-coming Olympic athletes. The Olympic Foundation for Culture and Heritage partnered with Think Architecture to design and construct an athlete and workforce residence housing project at Utah Olympic Park.

Providing short-and long-term housing options for athletes and employees, the housing expansion further highlighted Utah’s commitment to creating sustainable Olympic venues as the state strides toward making a bid for another Winter Olympic Games.

The Residences at Utah Olympic Park project included a $13.6 million four-story facility with 72 housing units and 146 beds while earning our park city architects and development partners the 2020 Residential/Hospitality Award of Merit from the ENR Mountain States.

Think Architecture also worked with the Foundation on the master planning and feasibility for the Utah Olympic Park site for future projects, including additional housing, a hotel, and other architecture projects.

We're quite multi-disciplined

Utah Olympic Park Athlete Housing in Park City, UT

Expanding the Athlete & Workforce Housing at Utah Olympic Park

Nestled into the hillside of the Utah Olympic Park Nordic jumps, the athlete housing at Residences at Utah Olympic Park includes 72 apartment units that accommodate nightly lodging guests and long-term apartment residents for athletes and employees. Our architects collaborated with the Foundation to create this state-of-the-art building to create an affordable housing option for athletes and employees to live in the town where they work, train, and play.

Built to provide subsidized housing for athletes and coaches actively training and employees of the Utah Olympic Park, the project consists of affordable nightly and monthly rentals. The combination of apartment building design includes three thoughtfully designed floor plans, durable finishes, in-residence kitchens, and laundry, paired with views of the 2002 Olympic venue and Snyderville Basin. Unlike the crumbling concrete structures used for athlete housing in former Olympic venues like Sochi and Rio, the Utah Olympic Park design is sustainable and vibrant, helping to fulfill the project mission: To cultivate champions in sport and in life, deliver experiences that inspire communities and celebrate our Olympic legacy for generations to come.
