If you have not heard the news, Silverthorne will be welcoming TJ Maxx and Sierra Trading post in 2021!

When our clients reached out to us about helping them with the redesign of the Office Max building in Silverthorne, we jumped at the chance.

There are many buildings throughout Summit County that were once new and vibrant but have lost their charm and functionality over the decades. The old building that is home to Office Max is just one example of an opportunity to revitalize an outdated and underperforming commercial space.

Our client, a Denver based development team, wanted us to help them blend the styles between the modern developments they typically do on the Front Range and the current trends of mountain modern we are seeing throughout the High Country.

Our first steps were to recognize that the entire existing façade of the stores must come off giving us a blank slate to develop a fresh new concept.

The existing canopies created dark and uninviting store entrances. We wanted to create an airy, more open façade to invite users into the spaces. The new 14’-0” tall canopy allows shoppers to see into the stores and allows the stores to more effectively show off merchandise to draw in the public.

The new facades of the stores will be clad in reclaimed barnwood and the canopy will be supported with glulam posts, beams, and rafters with black steel connections.

We are proud to be a part of this revitalization project for our mountain community and we hope this leads to future updates in the surrounding area.
