The new home for investment management company Deer Park Road Corp., the 26,000-sf, four-story Deer Park Office Building in Steamboat Springs, Colo., resembles more of a mountainside ski lodge than a corporate office building. Designed by Vertical Arts Architecture, the building features design elements found in high-end custom homes in the region, including warm, natural materials, large decks on every floor, a modern, linear fireplace, a full commercial kitchen, and a cozy lounge and entertainment room.
The exterior design scheme is a modern take on Steamboat’s historic structures, with a unique gable and shed-form roof fused with flat roofs and roof decks, beetle-kill wood embedded into exposed structural steel, a Telluride Goldstone base, and patina steel siding.
Employee amenities include an open studio workspace, lounge, exercise room, catering kitchen, ski lockers, shared conference spaces on each floor, underground parking, and a promenade that connects the building to an adjacent ski gondola. Custom furnishings include conference tables, studio desks, and executive office desks.
