The Canadian Olympic Committee (COC) have revealed the design of Canada Olympic House, which will serve as a gathering place for fans during the upcoming Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang.

The House, which will be located near to Gangneung Olympic Park, will also welcome family and friends of athletes and coaches throughout the Games.

The design stipulates that the House will be 12,000 square foot in size, and is expected to welcome 10,000 visitors throughout the duration of the Olympics.

The House is designed to be a "home-away-from-home" where visitors will be able to watch the Canadian team during events and purchase Team Canada merchandise from the store.

Additionally, guests will be served food and drinks, including burgers, sandwiches, salads, wraps and poutine, a traditional Canadian dish.

COC partners, including SAS Analytics and Petro-Canada, will provide an up-to-the-minute medal tracker and complimentary event tickets for athletes' friends and families.

Derek Kent, the chief marketing officer of the Canadian Olympic Committee, said: "We are so excited to welcome Team Canada fans to Canada Olympic House in a bigger way than we ever have before.

"We are rolling out the welcome mat to the world.

"The foundation of the House is thanks to the investment of our amazing partners.

"Home is where the heart is, and for the 17 days that we are in Pyeongchang, Canada Olympic House will be home."

Martin Leblanc, an architect at Sid Lee Architecture, who produced the design for the House, added: "Sid Lee Architecture is thrilled to be partnering with the Canadian Olympic Committee alongside our creative team at Sid Lee Toronto.

"This unique opportunity allowed us to collaborate on an iconic space that will be a physical representation of the Canadian Olympic spirit outside of our borders and on display for the world to see."

The ceremonial opening of the House will take place on February 7 with the official House opening for fans scheduled to be on February 10.

Team Canada have won 62 gold, 56 silver and 52 bronze medals in their Winter Olympic history.

The 2018 Winter Olympics will take place in the South Korean county from February 9 to 25.

Other countries will also host their own houses during the Games.
