Crested Butte Center for the Arts

Designed as a reflection of the community’s distinctive culture and geography, visitors and community members alike are meant to feel at home in the space. The faceted main roof recalls the gabled roofs of the historic town buildings and the angular silhouette of near-by Mt. Crested Butte. The multipurpose, double-height lobby under the central roof combines massive wood structural members, textured copper, and rich fabrics within floor-to-ceiling glass walls to create a warm interior environment. As the Center’s hub, the lobby connects users to the 300-seat theatre, art gallery, dance spaces, and art studios.
