Located in a Summit County mountain community at an elevation of 8,730 feet above sea level, Silverthorne Elementary School is designed to respond to specific school district goals. The district envisioned a sustainable community-focused school that would provide flexible learning spaces to better serve their high achieving students. The two-story design takes advantage of exceptional views and maintains a compact volume, adding to the building’s energy efficiency. At full capacity, the school can serve 450 students.
