Located adjacent to the High West Distillery in Park City, this new facility serves as a gathering place for the Blue Sky Ranch and Resort development, which will eventually accommodate more than 300 guests for corporate retreats, training programs and other activities. Facilities will include a 24,000-square-ft. conference center, a luxurious spa and fitness center, and mountainside lodging for large or small groups.
The Blue Sky Reception Center is
highlighted with timber trusses, board formed concrete, and custom metal siding to create a rustic aesthetic that blends in perfectly with the natural environment.
The design incorporates these different elements and materials in a way that ensures the ambiance of the Old West. The materials are aesthetically pleasing, durable and highly functional. The building’s roof slopes dramatically to one side and provides for a contemporary, rustic look.
Interior spaces have beautiful wood floors and other wood elements, while exterior glass doors and windows allow in large amounts of natural daylight.
