This new design-build facility became the beginning of a master plan for the Town of Silverthorne’s cultural identity, using new architectural standards to represent a modernized direction for their community.
The 16,000-sf building features four unique performance spaces with the ability to modify spaces for various performances and events: a 150-seat black-box theater, a 68-seat black-box theater, a children’s theater and a 12,000-sf outdoor pavilion. Support areas include administrative offices and conference rooms, rehearsal and educational spaces, a stage workshop, a reception lobby with a bar, and a catering kitchen.
Unique to the building is the integration of the visual arts, showcasing local artist’s work throughout the facility. It also acts as an educational and support center for the Town, giving the community a versatile and functional new space.
The project required innovations to the theater aspects to deliver exceptionally functioning performance capabilities, while the construction team overcame the challenges of building in mountain terrain in a congested, tourist location.
