KIER wrapped up Wyndham’s new Park City vacation resort just in time for the 2014 ski season. This 86-unit, four-season club sits near the base of the Canyons offering timeshare owners outside adventure and inside luxury. This ski-in, ski-out facility is steps away from the Waldorf Gondola which allows members to walk outside and board the tram for a day of skiing.
A post-tensioned concrete deck at the lid of the underground parking structure allowed for four levels of wood construction. A large tunnel driveway was created to allow guests of the neighboring Miner’s Club access to their underground parking garage. This was an achievement in coordination that allowed traffic to and from this garage during and after construction.
The major design element is the corner “lantern” which gives breathtaking views down the Snyderville Basin to Quarry Mountain and fills the elevator lobbies with natural light. The building is articulated with Douglas fir timbers set in pairs, resting on natural stone piers. Colors and textures were taken directly from the surrounding landscapes from each season. A mix of metal finishes including nickel, chrome, bronze, stainless and brushed gold are a nod to the mining history.
KIER is proud to be a participant in the economic rejuvenation taking place in Park City. Resort/vacation building is on the rise which means that people are traveling for pleasure again. Wyndham stands tall as a stunning example of good things to come.
Wyndham won Utah Construction and Design’s Most Outstanding Hospitality/Resort Project of the Year for 2014.
