It is good too see a design outside of the "box" design. Their imagination and creativity are evident and welcoming in this entry. This design honors the locale and shows timeless. jp

I feel you are considering several great firms to design your project but particlarly think that Brooks + Scarpa's comments meant the most to me. I think the blend of current buildings with a new modern building will be a positive attribute to the community and bring a positive energy to this area.

Park City's progressive design concepts are most evident in the Brooks Scarpa comments. Impressed with their vision, I visited their firm's website and was further convinced of their creativity and commitment a project of this importance. We love to be in Park City--winter and summer and look forward to this new addition.

Judging from the images posted, most competitors seem to have put limited effort into their submissions. Brooks Scarpa's model on the other hand, shows attention to detail and sensitivity to context without compromising a really iconic vision. Looks interesting!

The Brooks Scarpa concept looks like a giant luminaria (lit-up paper bag) that is about 80 feet tall. That is significantly taller by about four stories than anything around it. Keep the concept and make it meet the zoning regulations (same with the Lincoln Log model). Loved their write-up.

“Townie”, thanks for your input. Here’s one of the reasons we came to the designed height. When we studied the site, a build out that follows zoning regulations and maximizes the full potential building envelope would actually block considerably more views of the surrounding buildings than our taller more narrow proposal. Since most of the surrounding buildings are long and horizontal, our more slender proposal blocks less of the neighboring views because it has less building area in their direct view. Even though our proposal is taller than the adjacent buildings it would feel less massive than a broader less tall proposal that maximizes the building envelope. In addition, the placement of the cloud and its tilt are, again, in deference to both view and design. We’ll be in Park City on Feb 2nd and look forward to talking to you in person then.
