Studio DH Architecture | Silverthorne Recreation Center

Silverthorne Recreation Center

The Town of Silverthorne is located 50 miles west of Denver in Summit County, the mountain recreation center of Colorado. Studio DH Architecture worked closely with the Town Board and Town Manager to incorporate the needs and suggestions gathered through user surveys and several public work sessions, resulting in almost unanimous support for the facility.

The lobby, located at the upper level, provides views to the swimming pools, gym, and running track. From the reception desk, staff can monitor activity in aquatics, the gym wing, and all parts of the community lobby and related public spaces. Large windows and skylights provide daylighting and views of the surrounding mountains. Due to the extreme mountain winter climate, special wall and roof details were developed to prevent humidity and moisture damage.
