Explain the project and its unique use of masonry materials and techniques.
Skullcandy Corporate Headquarters is a unique project that incorporates many urban architectural concepts as well as connections of buildings to roads and pedestrian walkways.
The 49,300 square ft. building is located near Kimball Junction in Summit County, Utah. Project costs were approximately $9 million. Skullcandy is a global brand and technology company that produces headphones, earbuds and wireless speakers.
Their niche is the outdoor enthusiast with a counter-culture vibe to everything they do. The products they produce are designed to be rugged and tough, yet stylish. This became the starting point for the design of the building. The building needed to be a reflection of the culture and vision of the company, while still maintaining a connection to their founding roots in Park City.
This was accomplished by incorporating modern, natural building materials, and carefully evaluating every design element. The Sunrise Peak natural stone thin veneer is quarried 15 minutes from Park City and much of Old Town Park City was quarried from the same area. This helped to embrace the modern while paying homage to the past.
The exposed structural steel, concrete floors and ceiling are distinguishing aspects of the design that play off the raw, counter-culture movement of Skullcandy. The mountain-desert style landscaping features include low water use materials, a drip irrigation system, and uses less water than County standards for water use levels.
The site is located in a Boyer Company owned and master planned Technology Park (Park City Tech Center “PCTC”) which will eventually become a campus of many buildings with companies similar to Skullcandy.
The site has an incredible view of the Utah Olympic Park which will be preserved due to dedicated open space between the Skullcandy Building and the Olympic Park site. This design was ultimately reached as a comfortable balance between making the statement Skullcandy needed while fitting into PCTC and the broader Kimball Junction area.
