SkullCandy

Capitalizing on Park City’s modern design movement, Skullcandy’s 49,300 square-foot office building mirrors its environment. This office building design features floor-to-ceiling windows, sleek lines, and interesting visual features. Skullcandy is a world-famous headphone audio technology company that’s based in Utah. They were one of the first tenants in this Park City Tech Center development, which gave Think’s commercial architects and interior design team more freedom to push the limits of this office building design. 

Skullcandy’s office building is located near Kimball Junction in Summit County, Utah. This new office building celebrates company creativity with large open spaces, communal areas, and industrial aesthetics. The modern design reflects the company’s progressive culture of technology and sustainability with locally sourced stone, zinc panels, and Cor-Ten steel that will reflect the natural colors of the surrounding area. Architectural features accentuate the fully-loaded interior amenities, including a half-court basketball court, putting green & a skateboard halfpipe.

The site also has an incredible view of the Utah Olympic Park, which the state will preserve due to the dedicated open space between Skullcandy and the Olympic Park.

Think’s landscape architecture studio created the unique mountain-desert-inspired landscape. Our landscape architects incorporated a variety of water-efficient design elements. Skullcandy’s sustainable landscape design includes a drip irrigation system and uses drought-tolerant plants throughout. This water-wise landscape design helps Skullcandy to use much less water than the County recommends, without sacrificing any curb appeal.

The distinctive window mullion pattern creates a visual sense of movement and energy that emphasizes the site’s natural environment. The building’s NanaWall SL70 operable walls were customized to include horizontal mullion locations aligned with the curtain wall system, bringing the design together into one beautiful & cohesive project.

Inspiring creativity through cohesive architecture

Nestled at the base of the Utah Olympic Park in world-renowned Park City, the Skullcandy corporate headquarters is a model of workplace performance, balanced with culture and creativity. This project aimed to create an environment that was open so it would inspire engagement, development, and productivity while meeting the specific needs of Skullcandy’s various departments in one cohesive building. Think accomplished these goals by creating a design that included generous circulation spaces with open office planning and stairs. The continuous floor to ceiling glazing systems further enhanced the plan by keeping the building open and free-flowing.

The new Skullcandy office also met a myriad of required functional spaces, as well as the typical corporate office functions all under one roof. Our architects worked closely with trade partners  to meet unusual programmatic requirements for atypical spaces, including an anechoic chamber, woodshop, painting booth, printing room, lab space, warehouse, retail store, music jam room, snowboard and ski storage, bike storage, changing rooms, photography studio, retail display workroom, halfpipe, workstations, and conference rooms. Altogether, the Skullcandy project blends the company’s progressive tech culture with the surrounding landscape, creating a unified design aesthetic.
