As Think Architecture and Silver Star developers planned this commercial development project in Park City, UT. They envisioned creating a home for the Sundance Institute by retrofitting historical mining-era buildings into their modern campus design.
Working together, our teams created Sundance Institute’s unique headquarters and year-round office space for the world-renowned Sundance Film Festival. This 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.
