As Think Architecture and Silver Star developers planned the Park City Development, they envisioned creating a home for the Sundance Institute by retrofitting existing mining structures into a modern campus.
Working together, our team created Sundance Institute’s unique headquarters, a year-round office space for the company known for the world-renowned Sundance Film Festival. The Park City project involved renovating two old mining-era structures, including a former machine shop that operated during the town’s early mining era. The machine shop was infilled with two-story office space inside the existing steel structure to create 6,000 square feet of usable space for the Institute.
The project also included designing a second building for office overflow inside an old sawmill structure. The site encompassed nearly 2,000 square feet of office space, as well as ten housing units for artists on the structure’s second floor. The entire historical restoration project was one of the community’s most ambitious preservation projects, resulting in beautiful office space that Sundance can use for years to come.
