Pendry Hotels and SB Architects have revealed the design concept for Pendry Residences Park City, a ski-in, lift-out hospitality complex in Utah’s Canyon’s Village.
Set to take the form of an Alpine-inspired mountain basecamp comprising a 150-key hotel alongside a series of residences, a ski valet, spa, and a variety of restaurants and bars, the project will be situated within 1,000 acres of mountain terrain, with the resort extending beyond the Pendry element by way of a bridge that links adjacent properties, integrating it with the existing village.
SB Architects have conceived the complex as an anchor point for Canyon Village, housing the accommodation within three buildings sitting on a shared podium. Two linear buildings will be joined by an L-shaped structure and an attached public plaza space, with the firm seeking to create a tranquil base for guests to enjoy a ski in/lift out format, après with friends, signature dining and shopping experiences. Pendry, meanwhile, will look to instil a neighbourhood-style coherence, and celebrate the warmth of alpine tradition while embracing expressions of a modern lifestyle.
“In an explicit departure from the more traditional ‘mountain lodge,’ we took inspiration from more contemporary ski destinations of Europe to reinterpret Park City’s past within a contemporary architectural vernacular,” says SB Architects Associate Keith Houchin. “The plaza and podium take on angular forms that reference back to the mountain ridges while a patinaed metal recalls Park City’s mining history. Units undulate to create protected balconies and floor to ceiling windows that maximize views from the living spaces toward the mountains and activities as they unfold across the plaza.”
Along with its selection of leisure experiences, Pendry will also offer more than 7,000ft2 of indoor meeting space, including a 4,000ft2 ballroom. Construction of the resort is scheduled to begin early summer 2019 and be completed in winter 2021.
