Located in the heart of Summit County, Colorado, OZ designed The Silverthorne Performing Arts Center (SPAC) to help fulfill the strategic vision of The Town of Silverthorn in revitalizing their community through a creative and educational space. The main attraction is a black box theater with the capacity to seat 110-198 guests and the ability to modify the space for various performances and events. A second theater that seats 70 provides a more intimate setting with the added benefit of running two performances concurrently. Incorporating the educational objectives, SPAC includes two theater labs that serve as classrooms for the community.
Other notable areas include designated space for costume and set design, outdoor performance areas, rehearsal space, administrative offices, art exhibition areas, and a full bar and a prep kitchen. The building is equipped with wireless technologies and for convenient and reliable lighting, music, or special effects. The facilities were built with growth in mind, providing the opportunity for expansion. The collaborative and cohesive vision for The Silverthorne Performing Arts Center was designed to foster creativity and provide accessible education and inspiration for generations of Summit County residents.
